This year began with the welcoming of new student leaders and Reverend Courtney, and continued with the reception of new students at the Organization fair.  The fall retreat was a blast up in the mountains and the tradition of baking cookies on reading day continued to brighten the days of students sitting in the library in both the fall and spring semesters.  Pastor John welcomed the group into his home for meals and socializing near winter break and summer which was a fantastic bonding experience.  Reverend Courtney was formally welcomed to Elon in the beginning of the spring semester.  LEAF helped put together a Mardis Gras celebration with the Catholic ministry on campus.  As the year wound down, the spring retreat brought the group out to the beach for rest and group bonding.  It was an exciting year full of new and old traditions working together as one.

          

 

 

Spring beach retreat May 3, 2011

Filed under: Events — akeifer @ 9:25 PM

LEAF went on its first retreat this past weekend. We traveled to Oak Island and spent 2 nights there. Pastor David led sessions based on the beatitudes. Thankfully, we had great weather the whole time there and were able to spend Saturday lounging at the beach!

For Roots this week, Pastor David and seven students traveled to Loaves and Fishes in Burlington. We packed bags full of food which were to go out to needy families in the area. We had a lot of fun seeing just how much we could pack into our paper bags!

Christmas at Pastor Weinbach’s Home December 13, 2010

Just as Pastor Weinbach does every semester during finals, LEAF is invited to the Weinbach home for a dinner party. The food was absolutely delicious and conversation was wonderful.

Reading Day cookie baking

Filed under: Events — akeifer @ 12:45 AM

Every reading day, LEAF gets together and bakes cookies to hand out later that night to those studying in the Belk library. Finals are a crazy time, and LEAF tries to help relieve some of that stress.

Just to give you an idea, some photos of a typical LEAF Sunday (again provided by our full-time part-time unofficial LEAF photographer, Larry Vellani):

Still struggling with that projector, but I promise we got it working eventually! :D

LEAF at the Student Organization Fair

Here are some photos from a couple of weeks back, courtesy of our trigger-happy Faculty Advisor, Larry Vellani (his Flickr site seems to have multiple thousands of photos!) We had lots of students sign up and met many interesting folks, so the afternoon was a definite success! We still have a gazillion LEAF magnets left over, though, so ask and you shall receive! :)

This photo isn't staged at all.
