Ascension Dinner Laundry List

Laundry List of To-Do Items for

Rites of Passage

Ascension Dinner

I am horrible at planning, especially for parties and the like. I wish I could just hire an event planning company and have them take care of ALL the details for the Rites of Passage Ascension dinner. Alas, this event is on-the-cheap; so sweat equity (i.e., planning and executing) is a must.

As I considered the planning, executing, coordinating and all points in between I also thought of current and future readers. So, despite my utter ineptness in this facet of the Rites of Passage Program I figured it would be a good idea to share my laundry list of to-do items for the Ascension dinner.

Hopefully, as you plan your Rites of Passage program/event/dinner you’ll consider these things. I wrote it all down (trying hard not to overlook anything; often times the smallest oversight becomes the biggest deal during an event); but, I’m sure there is something missing. Use this list as a starting point for yourself. Take what is worthy; trash everything else. Enjoy—hope it helps!
