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.
Patriarch Hauck in on the left. I did not get a picture until the talk was over.
Lots of food: open faced sandwiches, as well as sloppy joes.
Veggies plate. Corn chips and accessories (refried beans, salsa, cheese sauce, tomatoes)
Traditional fanks and other desserts, too!
Missionaries are allowed to come (BRIEFLY) when they have investigators… Several investigators at this party – normal for many of our YSA functions!
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… !!!
Some of those who had costumes… They insisted that I was in the picture – I had a headband with boingy things!
Everyone here loves Cotton Eyed Joe!
Eszter was leading us in a folk dance step.
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.
