Our photos were contributed by Lani Kajama.

LDS Humanitarian Center tour

Last night we had an enrichment group activity to see "Welfare Square." It turned out that I made reservations at the LDS Humanitarian Center instead. OOOPS! It was fun anyway. It was very uplifting and so wonderful to see what the church is doing.

Afterward we all went to Leatherbys.

People who attended:

Louise Lundeberg
Margene Burgoyne
Erlene Lever
Charmaine Gallenson
Karen Ashby
Marilyn Long
Gloria Taylor
Karen Rushton
Julie Black

I forgot my camera and boy do I wish I had a picture of this wonderful group. Margene took a picture on her camera. We will see if we get it on here.
