Even though we had some rain on Saturday, it did not put a “damper” on the day.

We were thankful to be able to have the Ariel Candy Drop in spite of the weather forecast.

Busy Day

The people of Bittinger and Pillar of Life churches and their friends have much to do  today because tomorrow is the Big Day.  Among other things, many pies have been baked in preparation for tomorrow.  We hope to see you there!
