Last year the Single sisters did a dance for the couples of the mission for Valentine's Day. We decided we couldn't be outdone by last year's sisters, so we dug in and made it happen. The only place big enough is the Visitor's Center, so we moved the furniture out of the way, aside from the statue of Christ and of Joseph Smith, brough in some folding chairs, used the sound system from the visitor's center, set up some tables and used all sorts of creative things to make this work.
One of the couples here belongs to a square dance group, so we asked them to put some music together, and the rest of the evening, we put together. We baked over 600 cookies, decorated 12 cakes for door prizes, put together a floor show, and I was mistress of ceremonies. So many of the couples have come up today with sincere gratitude. It was a nice service project.
