I think he's only 15

It did not look like a fund raiser dinner at all.

But it was.

The decor
The Menu
The tables set for small and large parties.


Stations of bread, salads, and water, just like in a real restaurant.
And no paper plates or cups.
Thank you Dad and Susan for inviting us as your guests.
It was put on by Heritage Ward in North Stake...our church, just a different ward and stake than ours. They were raising money for the upcoming very large Young Single Adult Conference.

The food was really good, although the menu above was not real. I thought at first it was but when they came around and asked us if we wanted a red or white sauce on our spaghetti, I found out the menu was just a decoration!

But that's okay, everything was done up so nicely.

My favorite part was this young boy...I think he was only 15, if that...who serenaded us at our tables. I have to say, I really really LOVE his voice! I don't know him, but I learned his name is William Malcolm. I will be watching to see if he is in Buchanan's high school plays in the years to come. To me, his voice is a shoe in.

Here's just a cut down glimpse.

What a fun fund raiser!! I love those dinners and my goodness that young man does have a very nice voice! It looks like everyone enjoyed the dinner!

The dinner turned out pretty good. Although, I was definitely interested in the first menu that offered "Grilled Salamon" (Salmon).

The young singer is really talented. But even more than that, he certainly had a lot of courage for a 14-15 year old.

It as a fun event. Thanks to Dick and Susan.

Thanks Jill for documenting our life--on many occassions--even when you're not there, i.e., Family Camp! We enjoyed this Italian Restaurant evening also. The leftovers we took home were delicious for our dinner again tonight. We were impressed with the whole affair. I so hope it was successful for their purposes. I'm eager to get a good report about it in church tomorrow. You are AWESOME!
Love, Dad and Susan

Yes, thanks Dad and Susan for inviting me as well. I'm just now enjoying the delciious left over spaghetii for lunch. I'm so glad your video of the young singer turned out Jill. He was amazing. He also did a rendition of Puppy Love and one other great song I can't recall.

It looks like you had a really good time! I love any kind of family get-togethers, and especially nice that it entailed an important fund raiser.
And that young man was phenomenal! Thanks so much for sharing that!
All the best,
Eileen
PS Thanks for telling me about the twins, I guess especially when you are so close to them you can easily tell them apart (in both looks and personality!), and thank your husband for giving more details on Hailey's splinter episode!

Sue said...

Pretty neat.

Interesting Rhonda...so did Rebecca know he could sing like that? I think he has an incredible voice!
