We had a wonderful dinner and fun socializing together as Relief Society sisters! We had 8 different tables decorated by amazing women: Elisa Anderson, Elaine Augustine, Monique Christiansen, Becky Kambourian, Sariah Kelly, Rachelle Moore, Carolyn Nelson and Merri Sorensen. The yummy dinner consisted of chicken cordon bleu, green beans, rice, salad, rolls and desserts. Various sisters in the ward provided the yummy rolls and desserts. Thanks to all of you for helping make the food! We also had two special musical numbers: Sister Freeman and her daughter Jessica played the violin with Sister Pearson on the piano the song "Bring A Torch Jeanette Isabella". And our closing song, "Mary's Lullaby," was sung by Wendy Eav, Rebecca Glathar, Angela Luke, Carolyn Nelson and Romie Olsen with Tiffini Taggart on the piano. It was beautiful! Brother Zitzman was our guest speaker and he did a great job with the topic from the scripture Matthew 1:23 which reads, "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." We are so grateful for our bishopric - thank you Brother Zitzman! We want to also give a big thank you to our committee who helped plan and put the whole evening together: Loree Allison, Karen Ashman, Linda Chand, Karen Dupaix, Denise Jardine, Jennifer McPhie, Michelle Smith and Melanie Vanderhouven. We hope that you all had a fun evening with us.
