Come tonight to find out the connection
Last Sunday was our annual potluck dinner for Thanksgiving.
We held it a bit early this year due to the crazy schedules of many of the people attending (this of course is nothing new – it’s the normal – crazy – that is). We had a nice turn out and great food.
Our guest speaker came down with the flu (Kande, we hope you are recovering!) and Lowell was able to get back in time to speak. It was a good service, and I think one that touched and moved everyone.
Thanks so much to everyone who brought dishes – especially Erin for bringing the guest of honor.
For those of us who are US expats, it’s always a special treat and reminder of home. It’s not the easiest thing to do to find real turkey and real dressing, even cranberry sauce, not to mention homemade pumpkin pie. All of those were on the table again this year – at the beginning
Here are a few photos. Apologies for the small number of photos. If anyone else took photos they would like to share, please let me know!
Due to the typhoon, tonight’s service – September 30, 2012 – is being cancelled.
Please, everyone stay safe.
