    We just left without telling anyone we were leaving.

    At my going away party, we played hide and seek. I told them all to hide while I counted to 100. I counted to 25, got in my car, and drove 200 miles away to university.

    Billy the Ex-Bethelite, did you have to be so cruel?

    When my family left a congregation we had been attending for over four years, no going away party yet when a study and his family were moving they had a party/get together for them. Talk about a slap in the face, it went with the fact that two people I had studied with never even invited me or my family to their house. Yet every time a congregational family moved to another residence I was always invited to help them move. We were always asked to cook some of our particular speciality foods and bring them. Was so glad to leave there. Have had some of them from that cong trying to befriend me on FB. They obviously don't know I faded almost 4 years ago.

    Thanks for all the replies everyone!

    Since we didn't get a going away party, I think we'll count our first Lake Tahoe Apostafest a few years back as a "Welcome Home" party.
