This center hosts year-round activities and events, including pastoral gatherings and widow retreats.
One of these events is Bum’s Bunch Supper, which took place on January 28, 2017, at the Juniper House at the retreat center. Attendees joined Debbie Phillips and the family for supper, which included a wide range of food. Attendees enjoyed brisket, beans, homemade tortillas, a salad bar, and banana pudding, which was Bum’s favorite dessert. In order to attend the gathering, attendees were asked to make a $50 contribution to the charity.
