I know this is hard to see but this is what the stage looked like at the end of the event. There were a total of about 6 women who had won in various categories on the stage with their awards ( little statues) and flowers while confetti was dropping from the ceiling. It was unbelievable. Oh, and the other strange thing, there were what looked like professional photographers there who as Sister Clark said "Kept taking the Kinghorn's pictures". I don't know if they noticed that the event was being translated for us, or just thought we looked important because of the "nametags" not to mention, Elder Kinghorn was probably one of the few men there who was not a presenter or photographer. I didn't mention that in between each presentation there was so very good entertainment. We saw Ukrainian Folk dancers, a great Children's Dance Troope, A few solo singing performances, and a wonderful number with a man singing Frank Sinatra's "My Way" in English with a Russian accent, while two women hung on beautiful scarves that came from the rafters and performed acrobatic moves. Well that just about explains it. Like I said, we don't always know what to expect but were glad we went. Valentina and her group of women seemed happy to have us and invited us to attend another performance soon. Sister Clark ask me "Why do they invite you? Is it because they hope you will help their organization? I don't really know, but as one of our friends say, "more will be revealed."
