Graduation Banquet 2014 Update

On Wednesday, May 20, 2014 the high school young people from First Baptist Church and School attended the annual Graduation Banquet. Everyone met at the church at approximately 5:15 p.m. with pictures being taken in the foyer.

We left the church around 5:35 p.m. using two buses and headed for the Chart House in Lakeville. It had been some time since a banquet had been held there. The weather was beautiful, and many of the young people had never heard of the Chart House.chaperones

There were 57 in attendance on that evening which included the following chaperones:  Mr. and Mrs. Graves, Mr. and Mrs. Von Wald, Mr. and Mrs. Foster, and Mr. Nate Otterdahl.

We had a wonderful evening with the food, and it tasted delicious. Mr. Foster then spoke to the young people and had a prayer of dedication afterward.

After the prayer of dedication we went on “the back porch” of the Chart House which overlooks a beautiful lake. We dismissed by class for pictures and eventually everyone made their way outside enjoying the beautiful scenery and taking many photos.

After taking pictures at the Chart House we got on the bus and went to Farmington Lanes for some bowling. The young people enjoyed themselves for about an hour and fifteen minutes of bowling and then we were able to get back to the church around 10:35 p.m.

We had an excellent evening. Mr. Graves is thankful to the many who showed up as well as our chaperones. We appreciate Mr. and Mrs. Foster coming as our guests as well. Praise the Lord for a wonderful time together.
