We had a great time making our memo boards last Friday, or as we liked to call them, our memory boards. We still need to attach the “hardware” so that we can hang them on our walls, but they all turned out great. I am hoping to post some pictures soon so be sure to check out our photo gallery.

Our Valentine’s parties were a big success, thanks in (a big) part to the beautiful cakes made by our very own Becky Pickart. I will be posting pictures of the cakes on the photo gallery too. We did some Valentine trivia and shared some memories.

Congratulations to Ruth and Gene Dyrsland on celebrating 64 years of marriage!! Ruth had Becky make the cakes for their celebration too and they were delicious. Thank you to Ruth and Gene for demonstrating the true meaning of love and commitment. You set a great example for the rest of us to follow.

Our outing to Ryan’s got postponed until March so some of the elders opted for me to go get them something from Burger King for lunch. It has been awhile since we did a “dine-in day”. Maybe we’ll have to do that again soon too.

Today we had our monthly Community Meeting. In addition to going over any concerns the elders have and planning the elder choice meal for March, we had a celebration to recognize all the accomplishments we made in 2011 on our Eden journey. We talked about completing Milestone 1 and some of our dreams for the future. We also re-dedicated our Eden tree in its new location and put a framed copy of the 10 Principles next to it. Thanks to Richard we enjoyed meat, cheese, & crackers, fruit, veggies and cupcakes. Yum!!

Well, that’s enough happenings to cover for now….
