Many many thank- you's are sent to each and every indexer in our STAKE. You all deserve a big round of applause and the choicest blessings for your hard work this past year. We appreciate all.
ICE CREAM SOCIALS
We are continuing to have our ice cream socials for the Wards that won in 2011.
Last Friday evening we held a social at the Surrey Hills Building for the OKC 5th Ward. Sister Mcintosh did a wonderful job preparing the Cultural Hall for the event. Approximately 85 people showed up and the honored guest was Sister Scabby who did an amazing job inspiring people in her Ward to begin indexing. We appreciate all of those in the 5th Ward who are indexing. In fact the number one indexer in the Stake comes from that Ward.
I was sorry that I forgot to take my camera. Everyone enjoyed the ice cream and fellowship. President Baclawski was able to attend and made it extra special for all.
This coming Friday night, 13th Jan, we are going to have the ice cream social for the Quail Creek Ward at the Stake Center at 7 pm. April Garwood is helping with the set up and did a fantastic job coordinating the efforts in her Ward in September so that the Ward accomplished their goal of doing over 31,198 names. Great Job and team effort!
Edmond 2nd Ward's Ice Cream social is still pending, just waiting on a good date for all.
ICE CREAM SOCIAL GOAL FOR 2012
It has been decided that each Ward or Branch will have to do 125% more names this year, than their highest month in 2011. So if you did 10,000 names to win in 2011 you will have to do 12500 names in 2012. The goal for each Ward/Branch will be posted later on this blog. This reflects the new goal for the Stake.
