Picnic and Rehearsal

Jul 11, 2015

At 8:15 our hosts kindly returned us to the Leamington United Mennonite Church to meet our coach. We motored along the edge of Lake Erie for a while until we found a good place to stop and explore the lakeshore. Blue skies and balmy breezes provided the perfect backdrop for discovering many pretty pebbles, sea glass and a Kan Jam game in the shade. 

Our next stop was the John Klassen residence where we delightedly consumed a scrumptious Mexican disco (dee-sko) lunch which was topped off with a fruit trifle and fresh strawberry tarts, which are not to be mistaken for pies. After lunch entertainment included a lively game of croquet, more Kan Jam, fly swatting, and much conversation. We serenaded our hosts with a few choice songs before piling onto the coach for the two hour ride to Faith Mennonite Church.

 Upon arrival we partook of yet another wonderful meal of grilled chicken, salads, wonderful rolls, and ice cream provided by the Lebold family. Afterwards we spent a few hours of lively rehearsal before our hosts arrived to take us to our beds. This is Janice’s church; she’s doing a great job of helping to host us.
