Youth Activity update

Spring in on the way.

Youth Rock Climbers Meet

The top six youth indexers during the March Madness Challenge, Courtney Wilkinson, Cameron Wilkinson, Megan Milligan, Rylan Pierson, Jalen Pierson, and Gretchen Christensen all met with President Baclawski last Sunday to decided where they will all go to do some rock climbing. After thoughtful consideration they decided to go to the DEVON BOATHOUSE  down on Lincoln Blvd, along the Oklahoma River. They will be going on Friday, May 30th. This will be after school is out and before girls camp and all the fun summer activities begin. Each youth was told to invite one person to go with them, preferably a friend outside of the Church.

The reason they chose the Devon Boathouse is because of the many different fun activities they could do there such as: Wall climbing, Rowing, Kayaking,  Zip Lining, and the SandRidge Sky Trail which is an 80 foot high adventure course with six levels of challenges. It sounds like a fun day. President Baclawski wanted to know if I would like to go along and give the zip line a try?  I would have done that 10 years ago, but not now thank you.

~KSBI TV Interview~

For those of you who  missed the broadcast of the interview on "Oklahoma Live" on Tuesday April 9th  you can either Google KSBI and review their postings for that day, or you can go to this link:   
The "Oklahoma Live" show is an one hour show, you will need to go to the 48 minute mark to see Kirk Kuykendall and me.

Pathway to Family Research Conference Review

The Friday night fireside with Brother Abram, our Area Family History Advisor from Bentonville, Arkansas, and his wife was wonderful. If you missed it you really lost out on a great evening . I saw one High Priest Group Leader and his wife there. This was for all members of our Stake to attend, approximately only 40 were able to make it.

Saturday's  classes were just fantastic. The consultants and others from the community who taught them did a great job. It was estimated that about 138 people attended, 75% of which were people from the community. Next year we hope to double our attendance of Church members and fun. If you have suggestions for classes you would like to participate in next year please leave a comment on this blog and I will forward it. IT IS A FREE ACTIVITY.

Indexing Tip
If you are indexing the US Immigration records for New York view the "Recent Updates" or read your messages from FamilySearch that are visible when you log in to index.
You do not need to index the signatures that appear on many of the forms. This has changed from their original instructions to index every name.
