The kids enjoyed the community Easter egg hunt... As you can see, they have several activities for the kids. Laura even won a $10 gift certificate to a community ed event.
Debbie and Steven are part of a choir that includes young people from 3 area congregations. They held a beautiful Easter program last evening. It was a fundraiser event with procedes going toward the purchase of new song books for Stony and Hasscib. (Can't find them in this little picture? Debbie is middle row, second from left; Steven is top row, third from right.) The kids manage and direct the choir on their own. They develope their own parts, etc. In addition to singing they have an instrumental component which they also self direct. For the fundraiser portion of the event they put together a festive, candle lit evening coffee. Again, they did it on their own from the planning to the baking to the serving and clean-up. Lots of talent and energy!
Ah, yes. Spring will come. The sun will shine. Flowers will grow. We will plant grass. For now, we will be content with styro cup reminders while we brush a fresh dusting of snow off the car.
