They also played some games, had a silent auction, and held a business meeting. The dessert contest was won by Kelly Cory and Gae Lou Haley. Dorreice Shuptrine and Gae Lou won the “Name That Baby” contest by identifying the most people from looking at their baby pictures. The family always gathers for a time of worship.

Delayne Vaughn played a piano solo, and Doug Haley gave a devotional message. A good time was had by all.
