Ruth Oliphant’s Retirement Celebration

Join us in celebrating the work and legacy of Ruth Oliphant as she retires after over forty (40) years of service to the children, families, and members of Normandale Lutheran Church.

Sunday, May 14th
Fellowship Hall (following worship)

Come for “Ruth inspired” food and treats, a short program, and lots of connecting and reminiscing.

In addition to this event, we’d like to do something special for Ruth as part of this celebration. As you may know, one of Ruth’s favorite things is writing notes and sending cards. Please consider sending Ruth a card to her home to honor her service and congratulate her on her retirement.

Anyone who sang with Mrs. Oliphant over the past 40 years are welcome and encouraged to sing. We can’t think of a better way to send her off into retirement than with a massive choir of all ages!

Children’s Choir Alumni – please come sing with us and honor Mrs. Oliphant one last time! 

If you would, please RSVP here so we can know to expect you!
