I was asked by my church pastor to head the hospitality committee for the major capital campaign we have undertaken this year. In addition to other smaller functions and duties, the Kick Off Celebration was the major event I had to plan. It all came together with the help of wonderful men and women, young and old, who all care deeply for good ‘ol Immaculate Conception Church. Here are the wonderful kids that helped set up a sparse gymnasium into a fun party! I made a cor-plast silhouette of church and the kids taped twinkle lights to dress up the front of the gym (I chose the church silhouette as the decoration theme as it is a local icon of our city as it sits prominently at the foot of Garrison and Rogers Avenue in down town Fort Smith.) They followed directions well and pulled the room together in 2 hours.
The kids and moms arrived at 9:00am on a Sunday morning to set up, decorate, bake and cook…here are the “church ladies!” What would churches around the world do without the help of church ladies?!! They are priceless!
Here’s the gym before the crowds…
and here we all are enjoying an evening of great fellowship and food!
