Farsang Buli – Feb 2014

Our second Farsang party… and the first on on a Saturday afternoon!   We decorated the room the Friday night before.  Our event started with a Fireside by President and Sister Hauck.  He is our Stake Patriarch.  He talked about the details surrounding the Golden Plates, including demonstrating with a box with 50 pounds of weight inside.  That is the approximate weight of the plates.  He wanted the students to understand how heavy they were.

Lots of food:  open faced sandwiches, as well as sloppy joes.

Bagozzis have stepped right in to help us at these parties.  We are hoping they will bridge the gap - between when we leave and a replacement comes for us... !!!

Not a huge turnout – but those who came had fun…  Not sure how they will handle the parties in the future; but we will be gone before the next scheduled one.
