The first day of the Gathering was a very interesting day. There is a large group in attendance this year and the meeting hall was overflowing both at the morning Bible study and at morning session. We had an excellent speaker at both sessions and his presentation was quite unique, but effective. The afternoon session was devoted to the auction and I am sure there amount of money that was raised was more than last year as the bids seemed to be higher. The business session was also conducted with the Board of Directors.
After the long day, we all traveled to a local restaurant (McFarland's) for dinner. The meal was good and the company was great.
The weather has been anything but fall like we expected. The temperatures were very high yesterday and the humidity made it worse! It has been so bad that Greta does not even want to go to the dog area, she just wants to stay under the AC.
