Leif on his 25th anniversary, birthday greetings to Sandra on her birthday, introductions of committee,

land lots of pictures.   Supper was at Aromas followed by the closing at the Salvation Army. We sang lots

of old well known hymns, had a very uplifting talk by Captain Pam. Then came the time for Vicki to receive her
