Recently, we got a really great missionary couple assigned to our Ward. They are David and Judy Allen and they hail from northern Utah. You couldn't ask for a nicer couple to work with. They are just wonderful people.
Happily, one of their first assignments is to help "shepherd" this older singles' program, and we've begun to meet on a regular basis, every other Monday.

They had prepared a slide show for us of some of the activities our Ward has had over the last five years - parties, talent shows and service projects, with young and old. (I even made it into one of these slides! That was a surprise!) It was a fun evening. We were able to reminisce and chat about the good times we've had together.

I like it!
We're hoping our little group continues to grow and get better established. Already we're deciding on activities and lessons for the future. It's a nice way to get better acquainted with our single brothers and sisters, and to be better able to provide love and support for those of us who have no family close by.
It's fun, too.
Next time, Glenn has promised to play his harmonica. Hey, where can you find that kind of entertainment anywhere these days?
