We had a lovely evening with several guests, two JQ’s and two unofficial JQ’s. Our JQ’s were Martel, Christopher, Carlos and Marvin. We ate a delicious bbq buffet (your choice of pulled pork or chicken on a bun), coleslaw, mixed green salad, chips and cookies. We introduced our guests; Cindy (former Cool Cat teacher), Laura (also a teacher), Alyson (mother of Christopher -a JQ), Colleen (Gwen’s neighbor) and Coleen’s puppy, Fanny (who is training to be a Paws dog for a hearing impaired person)! We also played “Minute to Win It” games led by Martha (click on it for more explanation). Pat did a wonderful job, as usual, capturing the evening. Enjoy the photos!
Marvin and Christopher compete against each other to throw ping pong balls into a bucket on Quotarian Cathy and Quotarian Lisa’s head.
Carlos and Emily compete against each other to hit a ping pong ball into a bowl using a clipboard.
Quotarian Maureen and guest Laura pick up penne with pieces of spaghetti.
All the boys try winking a cookie from their forehead to their mouth.
Carlos gives it a try…
… and he’s the first one to succeed! He made it look easy.
It took Christopher a few tries, but eventually he winked a cookie into his mouth.
The night was perfect. All who participated won a semi-melted candy bar (and from what I’m told it was still tasty, I shared mine with hubby). We gave each of the four boys a summer gift to help keep them occupied over their break; a model car kit. They were very appreciative and were eager to put them together.
Don’t forget our meeting in July! Click here for more details.
