We've been working on the Ward Activities Committee (ok, Jill and I *were* the Activities Committee) - but we have another couple to help us, Greg and Lisa Harper. They were a great help, as were many other volunteers who helped us put on a great Ward Christmas Party.Seating - Table Settings - Decorations - for 180
We spent from 12:00pm to nearly 10:00pm working on Saturday. (Plus about a month of other projects getting ready for the party) I put over 6.5 miles on my pedometer... all inside the church on Saturday, loading, setting up, packing up, garbage runs, etc.
Scenery - Backdrop - Fake Rock Wall - Zarahemlaesque
Here are some photos of the event - Journey to Zarahemla - a little 'different' take on the Birth of Jesus (this time from the point of view of the folks in the Americas) - we had lots of people dress up. (Even Jill!!!)
I took photos of various families in costume as part of the activity.
The Program had the Primary Children sing - a Narrator, Samuel the Lamanite speech, DVD clip from 'The Testaments', and Brother Morely sing 'O Holy Night' - then the Bishop finished up with a talk.
Whew! - it's now over...
