Our set up . . . we had a sign-in table, future acts of service/baked goods/handmade goodies table with bidding bags behind the items, and a survey-on-clipboards table. Our auction was a "silent auction". . . with our time-frame we figured that this was the best option. Oh, and I should mention the fabulous girls on our committee . . . oh! I could not have done it without our RS women!!
This activity really allowed for us to see the talents and energies of the women in our Ward. I'm still in awe. There was much laughter and a whole lot of friendly competition! Michelle's (remember Michelle?!) 'made-to-order Bouchon cake' was a hot ticket item as well as the gluten-free brownies I brought for all of our gluten-intolerant women . . . one of our sister missionaries included. Kinda fun watching them battle it out. I scored some wonderful homemade bath salts and scrubs as well as some much-needed dog-walking for Bear.
Such a great activity and so much fun! If they keep me in there, we'll do it again . . . hopefully bigger next time!
**************Remember how I said that one of my goals for the year was to do more service? So far, feeling pretty good on this one although, there is always room for more growth. I said it during my closing words at the activity, but I cannot even express the joy felt when doing something for others. It's helped me grow as an individual and has been a huge blessing in my life.
