W/ELCA VALENTINE'S BRUNCH
The 2023 Valentine Brunch was a fun break for the ladies who attended. The food was excellent thanks to the men who volunteered to prepare and serve. It consisted of Belgian waffles with strawberries and whipped cream, an egg bake cut like valentines, pork sausage, cranberry juice and coffee. We enjoyed a touch of class!
Taya Evenson entertained us with her beautiful singing accompanied by her Grandma Gayle.
The highlight of the event was Denise's super interesting, educational, and entertaining presentation about her Mom's WWII experiences.
All in all, it was a fun day.
A full house
