Happy Father's Day!!

Happy Father's Day to all you wonderful fathers!  Our ward had an activity last Friday where all the fathers were invited to a potluck dinner - furnished by the sisters in the ward.  We brought sandwiches, empanadas, and pizzas plus there was plenty of sodas to drink.  All yum!  Also, the Relief Society, our church's organization for the women, made pillows and bufandas for all the fathers, which they gave out today.

Monica Sachetti is busy making the fringe for a bufanda.

Ramonita Rojas was the instigator of the bufandas and pillows and here she's busily working on the projects.

Here's Elvita Alduncin, the Relief Society president, enjoying some mate.  We worked on the gifts at her home and she kept busy giving all the sisters some mate, except me as missionaries can't drink it.  As they all share the same straw and spend hours sipping and chatting and relaxing, it's not conducive to missionary work.

Gladys Brandan's very pleased with the sign she made.

Here's Doug with his new bufanda.  They gave a few pillows to some of the fathers and the majority received a bufanda.  Today was cold - didn't get above the 50's - and with practically no heat in any of the homes, you really feel it.
