While we expected about a hundred and fifty Lutherans to show up for the Thrivent picnic, the fifty or so who did come were enthusiastic.
My oldest son, his wife, and son enjoyed the hot dogs, corn on the cob, and playground equipment. They, as well as the other attendees, also thoroughly enjoyed the North Georgia Barbershop Singers.
This was our first attempt to sponsor a good old-fashioned summer picnic. It wasn’t a smashing success, but the people who came seemed to have had a good time. Maybe we’ll try it again next year.
In the meantime, when I wasn’t involved in getting ready for the picnic I was busy getting ready for our first committee meeting for our church’s scrip program. Seven of us met yesterday afternoon and set the wheels in motion.
Hopefully, we’ll be selling gift cards in the near future and start chopping away our mortgage debt.
