We had a wonderful evening! There was a delicious turkey dinner that everyone enjoyed followed by a narration and a few numbers by a rockin’ band. The best part of the evening for the kids was a visit from Santa and his wife. As Mrs. Claus told about the symbolism of various common Christmas items her husband showed the audience examples. The night ended with a chance for the kids to sit on Santa’s lap and receive a goodie bag with candy, a bouncy ball, and an orange. Thank you, Santa and Mrs. Claus! It is wonderful to get together as a ward family and celebrate the joyous Christmas season!!
This event hosted by the Relief Society and opened up to the young women was a great success. It was reported that the food was delicious and the ambiance was delightful with the displayed artwork and many Nativity Scenes. The high point of the evening was the program. It had several moving musical pieces each accompanied by narration. It was very well attended.
On Wednesday the 25th everyone had fun at the church as the Cub Scouts hosted a Chili/Soup cook-off and had a cake sale fundraiser. Lots of people dressed up and it was a great time. Most of the cakes sold for between $30 and $60 with a few getting as high as $100. There was fresh cider and homemade root beer. A great time was had by all.
On September 28th the ward got together for some great food and games. After Bishop Applegarth got the event started, and apologized for some logistical snafus – he admitted that it probably would have benefited from a womans touch, the event was opened by a prayer. Then we all enjoyed getting to know our neighbors better while having a potluck and a roast pig. The primary kids also were able to enjoy sack races, donuts on strings, and an Oreo challenge. All the games were put together by the Young Women.
