Saturday found me flying not so high but near and far. Sounds like a riddle? Well, it started out early with a group of women from our little Ashland Branch who drove up to Akron in the cold, rainy/snowy weather to attend a women's conference that is held each Spring. The theme was what this pic is showing...being held up on Eagles' wings..those wings being the Sisters who serve so diligently each day in all the Wards and Branches of the Church to hold up each other in good times and trial times of our lives.
The room was set up with the colors of green and black...very pretty
I thought the centerpieces were very clever.
This is my friend Gayle showing off the service project that each unit did. We made dinner scarves for alzheimer patients. There were a ton donated that were all different in patterns and colors. I know the nursing home where these were going was very appreciative. We're going to continue with this project and donate scarves to a nursing home in Wooster.
This was the schedule of the morning listing the 6 classes available. We were to choose 3 to attend.
This is an small part of the first class I attended. It was on entertaining and how to do it economically. She had a ton of fun ideas to share. This was the only pic that came out not blurry. It's a cupcake tower that she made herself and decorates it differently for different parties. I enjoyed this class the best since I'm always looking for some fun ways to make entertaining special but not always running to the Party store for supplies.
The classes started at 9 and ended around 11:30 and then it was lunch. I had to shoot a blurry pic of the lunch and I'm sure your looking at it going..what the heck is it? It was a layered taco number with meat, beans, veggies, all the fixings and it was really good. Very different from the usual chicken salad that's been served in the past. There was cake for dessert, but I'm not a big cake lover, so no pics..sorry! Then we all jumped back into the van and headed for home.
A few hours later I found myself at my Granddaughter's high school to watch the "grand march" for their prom. Here is Driana and her date. I haven't talked to her to find out if they had a good time, but knowing that the dinner was at the Ashland Country Club I know it was probably really nice. Then they had "post prom" at the University and use of the the facilities there. Swimming, rock climbing, games and tons of fun. So my Saturday was spent going from event to event. Jack filled in and went to our other Grandkiddos soccer game. Sorry I missed it but the thought of standing in the cold, rain/snow mix made me glad I was indoors...sorry Jack!
