YSA Party:

These pictures are of a YSA party that we helped organize.  When we met to plan the activities, each Branch was to send a representative.  We told them we would have dinner for them.  When I checked with the YSA rep she said to plan for about 20 people at the planning meeting.  So I made spaghetti for 20.  Only about 6 showed up.  I heard nothing from the YSA rep until about two days before the planed event when I got a text saying that it was all set for 6:30 on Friday night.  Elder Weber and I were a little concerned about how many would show since we hadn't heard any announcements at Church and the planning meeting had such a poor showing.  We though may 20 to 30 kids would come.  Well, on Friday the kids just kept pouring in.  We ended up with about 100 kids there.  We played the pass the orange on the feet game.  They had a ball with that.  The we passed the orange under the chin.  That was really entertaining.  Then we taught them a round dance (which is what they wanted to do) Oh, Johnny Oh, Johnny Oh.  That was really fun also.  Elder Weber met some of the kids who were there on the street the following morning and they said they really had a good time.  Pictures of the party are below.

The one thing they didn't take care of was the refreshments.  No refreshments showed up.  We thought about going out to get something, but what do you pick up for 100 kids when no stores are open, etc.  They didn't seem to miss the food.  A good time was had anyway.
