The Words of the Schanker Family
Due to the overwhelming demand for participation in the New York Blessing Workshop (well over 100), it will be impossible to hold the program at the Lovin' Life Learning Center in Manhattan as originally planned. Therefore, with our sincere apology for any inconvenience, the program will take place from Friday evening through early Sunday morning at the UTS Conference Center in Barrytown, NY, and conclude around 4:00 or 5:00 PM in Manhattan after Lovin' Life Worship Service in New York City.
In order to accommodate these changes, we are preparing the following:
Registration will begin at 43rd Street at 3:00 PM Friday, with 2 shuttles to UTS, at 4:00 PM and at 6:00 PM. A light and portable dinner will be available for the 6:00 PM shuttle.
For those traveling directly to UTS, registration begins at 6:00 PM, followed by dinner and the opening program. All participants must be at UTS before 7:45 PM.
For those traveling by car or van, there is ample parking at UTS. Directions can be found at www.uts.edu/directions.html. The UTS campus is located at: 30 Seminary Drive, Barrytown, NY 12507
For those traveling by air, train or bus to NY City, and planning to arrive at 43rd Street by 6:00 PM, there will be two shuttles from 43rd street to UTS, leaving at 4:00 PM and again at 6:00 PM. Please indicate whether you need transportation from 43rd Street in New York City to UTS on the attached response form.
For those who need it, transportation will be provided from UTS to Manhattan early Sunday morning. Please indicate whether you need it on the attached response form.
III. REGISTRATION FEE & ACCOMODATIONS:
An additional $5 must be added to the workshop fee to help cover the additional costs ($90 total). However, professionally-prepared food and dorms with bunk-beds will be an improvement over the humble accommodations we had prepared at 43rd Street. In addition, transportation between 43rd Street and UTS will be an additional $10 each way. Participants should bring sleeping bags as originally planned. Some guest rooms may be available for parents for a modest additional charge.
Be sure to return the attached simple response form immediately, to Blessing@familyfed.org.
