LDS fest

We had the best JA activite on June 20th. It was the LDS Fest (music festival). We worked so hard and had a very fun and successful activity. There were over 100 in attendance. The decorations were great, the food was good, the music was awesome, smoke(dried ice) was billowing throughout the evening, and I think everyone had a wonderful time. From our first activity of 6 in attendance, this was amazing. We have great youth here.
Getting ready.

We had youth manning each area and serving all who came. We had all kinds of food in the buffet section and it was delicious. In the cookie area, we had cookies and also a huge variety of other desserts. Many brought food to share in addition to all the food that we prepared. Everyone went home with full, satisfied bellies.

The music was soooo good. Manu and his soon to be nephew. Manu and his band.

The Gigant brothers. Manu(getting baptized on July 25th), Stephane and Gael(baptized Jan & Feb).

Our amazing youth and the Bonds. Dave and Jane Bond, an English couples that now live in Arras. She has a great, deep voice and he can really play that guitar.

Listening to the band. After listening for a long time, people began dancing and ended up dancing the night away.

Can you tell who had my camera for a while?

Our institute director, Bro Vanaquer goofing off. He is a fantastic teacher and the youth love him.
Hayleigh and Kami, 2 american girls who are here for the summer doing an internship at the university. These two girls are sooo nice and can sing really well. They just joined right in and became part of the group, participating, helping, and just plain having fun.
