Foley Area C.A.R.E. staff and members of the Board of Directors and their spouses, attended a dinner celebrating the retirement of Pastor Al Jergenson, at Coyote Moon Grille on September 22nd.
In 2002 Pastor Al was a member of the steering committee, and became the first chairman of the Board of Directors of the newly formed Foley Area C.A.R.E. Program. Carol Mersinger, Director of the CROSS Center in Foley, served with Pastor Al in those early days on the steering committee and told us, “He is a visionary who understood how a program like this could benefit and grow in this community”. We agree; his contributions of time and resources to C.A.R.E. over the years has been instrumental in its success.
It is with great affection that we thank this loving, kind and generous man, and wish him every joy and happiness now and in the future!
