Dark Ages Care Packages Meeting

DARK AGES:  dictionary definition:


1.  the period in European history from about a.d. 476 to about 1000.

2.  the whole of the Middle Ages, from about a.d. 476 to the Renaissance.

3.  (often lowercase) a period or stage marked by repressiveness, a lack of enlightenment or advanced knowledge, etc.

DARK AGES:  USNA definition:

The dark doldrums of winter at the USNA are known as “The Dark Ages”, when the Mids await their March spring break. If you are a PCCNE member, your Mid will receive another care package at this time. Parents come together to prepare these packages with lots of TLC.

Message from our President:


Hi PCCNE Parents!

Now that the holidays are over and they are back to school, it’s time to start thinking about Dark Ages Care Packages. And of course this is just an awesome opportunity for us to get together and socialize. 😊😊

In addition to our regular agenda, one of our members will give us a “Commissioning 101” lesson which I’m sure you’ll all find informative.

We’re going to try something a little different and have the meeting mid-afternoon and ask everyone to bring snacks, desserts, and drinks rather than having a meal.

We’ll also be stuffing Dark Ages envelopes for our Mids. Remember “many hands make light work” so we’d love to have you join us!

See you on the 29th!

Looking forward to getting together!

Karen Pinch
