This evening we attended the Post Christmas Celebration. We took Elder and Sister Berry with us and had a very enjoyable time with them. We saw several of our member families there and had a chance to visit or simply say hi. We also ran into a soldier whose father served with Elder Gowans in the B-52 at Barksdale AFB. This Soldier was born the year previous to our departure from Barksdale. The celebration was outdoors on the field where the 4th of July party was held. They had several booths of homemade crafts, free food provided by local businesses and an hour of music by the army band and other local artists. Of course, Santa came at the conclusion of the festivities. After the festivities they lit a huge bonfire.

After we left we met the Anthony family at the bowling alley and had a fun game of bowling. Can you believe Sister Gowans won the match. She out scored us all. She must have been half asleep. Now she is in bed reveling in her sweet victory.

Here are some photos of the evening.
