This lively group also enjoyed visiting Cane Ridge in Paris, Kentucky. Cane Ridge has a rich religious history dating back to 1791 and became the first Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in 1804. The meeting house is preserved inside another building. More information is available at www.caneridge.org.
Sunday worship service was enjoyed at Central Christian Church, Lexington, which was also the lodging place for the group. Fun, which included a visit to the Y.M.C.A, Thoroughbred Park and Old Friends Farm, was mixed in with the three day outing. Old Friends Farm is a thoroughbred retirement farm. One thoroughbred the members enjoyed included Popcorn Deelite which played Seabiscuit in the movie Seabiscuit!
Chi Rho members appreciate the support of their advisors, members of the congregation and those who supported their fundraisers. Members raised funds through three fundraisers from September 2016 through March 2017.
