Protestant Family Service
Dedicated to Christian Love and Service
March 2016

My Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ:

Greetings are being sent to you for a New Year filled with good health, joy, peace and love in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Protestant Family Service will hold its 45th Annual meeting commemorating 72 years of service to the Youngstown community on Monday, May 16, 2016 at Zion Lutheran Church located at 3300 Canfield Road in Cornersburg. Due to the unpredictable and inclement weather in February, the Board has moved the date to a warmer month. We certainly hope this will benefit all who make this an annual event.

Our gala event, which will consist of dinner, entertainment by Studio 32 Dance Company Middle School Group (featuring Morgan Baytos, Alexis Pomponio, McKenzie Rusu, and Brittany Sellers) and installation of new officers. Social ½ hour will begin at 5:30 p.m. and dinner will start at 6:00 p.m. Even though the event is a few months away we are starting to prepare the program book now.

Your help is needed in buying tickets and/or placing an ad in the program book. The proceeds from the souvenir journal will assist the ongoing work of PFS by creating a substantial financial cushion to start the year in its mission of serving. Since we are not a United Way or government funded agency and receive a small FEMA allowance, we solely rely on partnerships and grants to carry out our mission. Your ad can support our effort to make this a successful journal and memorable event. You may extend an expression in one of the following ways:

  • Congratulatory remarks
  • Well wishes
  • Words of encouragement
  • An anonymous wish
  • Words in memory/honor of a loved one
  • Words as a partner of P.F.S
  • Words thanks/appreciation for our service to the community

The souvenir booklet will be 8 ½”x 11”. An ad form is attached. The cost per ad is:
Whole page…. $110.00 Half page……. $65.00 Quarter page…………… $35.00 Business card… $30.00 Patron listing… $15.00 Dinner reservations are…$25.00
