THANKSGIVING DINNER

Decided to to Thanksgiving dinner for the two zones in the Osorno area - 50 people - what was I thinking?  It was great!  One of the zones had preparation day this day, but the other didn't.  They were both more than willing to come and eat turkey.

KITCHEN IS KIND OF CROWDED WITH MORE THAN ONE COOK

Ready to eat.. Elder Johnson, Elder Smith, Pres. Rappleye, Elder Goodman, Mirta, Sis. Goodman, Sis. Rappleye
