The congregation picnic was this past Saturday. It is always nice to get together with everyone outside the congregation meetings and the weather was perfect for an upbuilding time.
Normally held in September, the location is perfect. There is a swimming pool, a volleyball pit, and a place to play football or Frisbee. The kids especially love the pool!!! The girls have become such good swimmers. In fact this was the pool that last year Emma and Sophie learned to swim.
The Lessers normally organize the gathering. We got there early to help set up. The Lessers were already there cooking hamburgers, hot dogs, BBQ chicken, and carne asada. They will be moving to another congregation nearer their home in a couple of weeks. They will be missed.
