65 People Enjoy Horseback Riding & Various Activities

On Saturday, September 26, 2009, a total of sixty-five people enjoyed an evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Sullivan in Cannon Falls. These are gracious, faithful folks who have opened up their place many a time to our youth.

Our youth group enjoyed horseback riding, hikes, hayrides, food, football, frisbee, target shooting, and a great time of fellowship. We had hot dogs for supper over a big bonfire. Mr. Sullivan drove the tractor for the hayride. Mr. Dave and Pastor Rupe helped with the target shooting. Mr. Cain helped with the organized games. Mrs. Sullivan and Miss Jessica helped with the horseback riding as well as Mrs. Graves. Mrs. Von Wald and Mrs. Johnson helped with the food. We had other adult workers that also stepped in to help as well. We appreciate all their help.

The young people had a great time and the weather was just beautiful. The bus left at 3:15 p.m. but not before Angelina and her parents treated everyone on the bus to some ice cream waffle cones to celebrate her birthday. The cost was $4.00 to attend. We arrive right around 4:00 p.m. and left shortly after 7 p.m. Although we took reservations for the first thirty-six people to sign up for horseback riding, we were actually able to have everyone ride who wanted to.

Many teenagers rode a horse for the first time or shot a gun for the first time. What a beautiful evening to fellowship and have a good time in the Lord. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Sullivan and Jessica, for a great time and for all your work and labor of the love for the Lord. We appreciate you all very much.

Mr. Graves and Mr. Sullivan talked briefly on Sunday, the day after the activity. Let’s put it this way: It didn’t take long before talking of future plans. Mark your calendars for next year’s activity. The date will be Saturday, September 25, 2010, Lord willing.
