THIS FRIDAY IS THE OPEN HOUSE AT THE KALININSKY BUILDING

this is the beautiful sign that was made for the open house

WE HAVE BEEN BUSY INVITING HEADS OF THE ORGANIZATIONS WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH TO OUR OPEN HOUSE THIS FRIDAY. THE BRANCH HAS BEEN WORKING HARD TO GET THE KALININSKY BUILDING READY. WE WILL HAVE TOURS OF THE BUILDING WITH ALL OF THE CLASSROOMS SET UP WITH DISPLAYS. THIS WILL PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE COMMUNITY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR CHURCH.

WE WILL HAVE A DISPLAY OF OUR HUMANITARIAN PROGRAM WHICH WILL INCLUDE A DEMONSTRATION OF THE PUPPET SHOW.

FRIDAY NIGHT IS VIP NIGHT AND SATURDAY IS FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC. I HAVE BEEN BUSY TRYING TO GET OUR DISPLAY READY AND GETTING SOME PHOTOS OF SOME OF THE BRANCH ACTIVITIES.

LAST FRIDAY WAS OUR LAST "STRENGTHENING MARRIAGE" CLASS. THANKS TO OUR DAUGHTER KARRISSA AND THE LAST PACKAGE FROM HOME SHE SENT I MADE SOME YUMMY BROWNIES, BUTTER COOKIES AND CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES. WE WERE WORRIED THE TURNOUT WOULD BE SMALL BECAUSE OF THE WEATHER BUT WE HAD A LARGE GROUP AND IT WAS A GREAT NIGHT. TEACHING THIS CLASS HAS BEEN REALLY FUN AND A WONDERFUL WAY TO GET TO KNOW THE MEMBERS OF THE BRANCH.
