Palaschuk Funeral set

The service is going to be held August 15th at the Conley Funeral home in Wynyard instead of Raymore.  The service will start at 1:00pm.  As we are limited to 40 people at the funeral home and family will receive priority.  For this reason, we will also hold an outdoor service with burial at the Stone Church.
We still plan to hold a bagged lunch following the Stone Church service at an outdoor venue.  We invite folks to bring their lawn chairs so we can social distance and safely visit.  The bagged lunch is currently planned for the WPLB farm, but that is subject to change.
