Halloween... the 5th Ward Halloween Dinner and Carnival
This year the Activities Committee voted to do a Carnival instead of a Harvest dinner. Man!, I wish all my friends and family could have been there for the ward party. It was really, really a great activity if I do say so myself :). I think we had about 100 people come, and we had lots of things to do: booths (tic tac toe toss, bingo, cake walk, pin the wart on the witch, and a halloween photo booth), games (guess how many candies in a jar, coloring contest, and a costume contest), plus food (chili and corn dogs), and lots of great visiting, prizes, joking, family, mingling, and friends.
I grew up in a little town with just under 10,000 people. I like the sense of community and family. Not at first though. Like most teenagers I couldn't wait to get out of here. And I did. I went to college and then university. I studied lots of different material and mets lots of different people. I had some really awesome experiences and some rather trying ones too. It was during those difficult times that I found who my real friends were so I like to stick with them. Once a friend; always a friend.
