Volunteer Party

DinoMights held its volunteer appreciation party this past weekend. We had a great time. We spend so much time serving the kids together, that we really do get to be close. On the other hand, we don't get a lot of time to just be together as adults. So these occasions are really special. I'm adding a poll to the blog this week on whether or not we should try to do some kind of mid-season volunteer get together next year. Let us know what you think. If you aren't a volunteer, but you read the blog you can still vote. Just vote how you would if you were a volunteer. Below are some highlights of the party.

We cooked Bison Burgers and Bison Dogs. They were a big hit. Here are some comments about the food:

"This is the best hot dog I've ever had."
"I'm never buying beef again!" (Because Bison is just sooo good)

Bison is very lean and no one has ever gotten sick from eating undercooked Bison. Also, it has a lot of environmental benefits. It is local and organic.

A big thanks to the North American Bison Cooperative and TenderBison for donating the food!

We had a lot of fun at the home of Ken and Carol Engelhart. Here we are in the backyard playing beanbag toss.

Leah, Rich, and Kevin have been Mites coaches for a long time. Rich and Leah completed their seventh season, and Kevin completed 5. The four of us all went to Gustavus Adolphus College. We met as a part of FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes). It is pretty special to be serving together after so many years.

Adults can have fun too. Here we are at the volunteer party playing Nintendo Wii Tennis. The Wii was courtesy of volunteer Brian. Thanks Brian!
