    My memory is not as good as it once was. I think it was October 1973. The location was the circuit assembly in Muncie Indiana

  • Quandry

    1973-November or December-Jacksonville Florida-it was at a Circuit Assembly so we had to be taken to a local old Kingdom Hall that had a baptismal pool under the stage.

    Studied in 1982, two weeks before my baptism, the brother who introduced me to "the Truth" was disfellowshipped.

    I got baptized in New York at the 1983 "Kingdom Unity" District Convention.


    BTW ... when did they start "naming" district Conventions?

    1991 District Convention in Madison, WI. I wish that I had followed through on my plan to do a cannonball into the water.

    June 25, 1988 at the Hialeah Fla racetrack. (can you say "Flamingo party"?)

    I think the theme was "Divine Justice". I recall sitting between a future bro and sis who were talking right over my head. They seemed to like each other for what I could tell. Of course, I was 13 and looked like a computer mated with a calculator, and not really educated in such matters.....

    Jeff, I may have been at that assembly in Hialeah. That was one of my favorite places for assemblies.

  • dinah

    I don't remember the theme of the convention, I really don't even remember the year, but it was a DC in Birmingham, AL. It was the early 80's and I was 13 or 14, can't remember. So, you guys can tell how important the date was to me, huh?

    Jeff, I had been out for 2 years when you got dunked.

  • AllTimeJeff

    Dinah, you have been out for over 20 years?

    I thought it was so cool I got baptized as young as I did, and toward the end, I was one of those JW's who could say that I was baptized for a long time.

    Now, I am the newbie, recently out of JW's.... Can't wait to be 20 years removed from that!
