Save the Date: Memorial Day Weekend at UTS & East Garden
Save the date! This Memorial Day Weekend will feature several exciting celebrations in observance of the Day of All True Things and the anniversary of the founding of HSA-UWC, including a special missionaries’ reunion and awards ceremony at the Unification Theological Seminary (UTS) and a spring festival marking the opening of the Hyojeong East Garden Museum.
1975 Missionary Awards Ceremony and Reunion
Forty-two years ago, in the Spring of 1975, our True Parents made two momentous decisions on the Barrytown campus of what would become the Unification Theological Seminary. They called together the best and the brightest members of the American movement to participate in two great initiatives: the establishment of the first UTS class, which graduated in 1977; and the training of candidates who had been chosen for the international missionary outreach to 120 nations.
This Memorial Day Weekend, UTS and FFWPU are hosting an inspiring Awards Ceremony and Reunion for all 1975 missionaries and their families on Saturday, May 27. We would like to invite you to join this special gathering, which will be held at Barrytown and then transition to East Garden in Irvington, NY for the grand opening of the Hyojeong East Garden Museum on Sunday, May 28.
You will be our honored guests during your stay, including two or three night’s accommodation at UTS, and all meals from evening dinner on Friday, May 26, through breakfast on Monday, May 29 covered. If needed, transportation to East Garden on Sunday, May 28 can be arranged. To RSVP and to receive a link to the registration page, please email email@example.com with information for which nights you will need accommodations and for which meals you will be present.
Springfest: Opening of the Hyojeong East Garden Museum
The grand opening of the Hyojeong East Garden Museum, dedicated to the life and work of True Parents in the United States, will take place on May 28 in conjunction with a spring festival celebrating the 55th Day of All True Things and the 63rd anniversary of the founding of HSA-UWC.
Last year on December 6, True Mother cut the ribbon and offered a heartfelt prayer at the dedication ceremony for the Hyojeong East Garden Museum. Now, under the guidance of True Parents and the hard work of museum director Michael McDevitt and his team, the buildings are spruced up, the grounds manicured and the first permanent exhibits are on display.
Join us for an exciting day of food, museum tours, music–courtesy of Apple Heaven USA–and more!
