Wow, sounds like a fun day! And a neat community. Is that your church? I used to go to an Episcopal church once.
Hi Jeanine, yes, I've been attending this church. It was a fun day and it's a nice community.
Wow, looked like a lot of fun! Sounds like you could use some rain though, I wish I could send you some of ours! 😉
Alice, it sounds like a super day, enjoying and building community, while eating tasty food as well. My husband and I go to a large Episcopal church in Scottsdale, Arizona, so terms like "Junior Warden" are familiar. I hope you get more rain soon.
Thank you so much, Kebba!
