Fun and Frolics

“Have you ever ran up a road
frantically trying to remember the
verses to “Old MacDonald Had A
Farm) or ride a broom down a dirt
road screaming “Hi-Ho-Silverl? If
you were at Camp Little Pisgah on
Sunday, September 11, you may well
On this noted occasion, the
Howerton guys and the McGregor
gals all got together for a get-
together. After lunch, cars were
cramped, and trucks were tipping
with over 80 folks heading over to
Camp Little Pisgah. 'The day’s
activities included softball,
volleyball, swimming, canoe r aces,
and the “Banana Biggie! '
Everyone was involved in this
hilarious competition by either
eating bananas, or cheering a
teammate on. In the canoe races
competition was heavy and the
canoes were “paddle to paddle until
one met the dreadful fate of hitting a
bee post head-on, and another
managed to fill with water and sink.
The fully clothed swinning relay
races were great, except everyone
seemed to be losing their pants,
hats, and sweaters!
The day ended with a hamburger
picnic and explicit instructions to
get to (know everyone there. The
folks there were really blessed with
warm sunshine, good fun, live en
tertainment, and neat fellowship.
All in all the Howerton-McGregor
Picnic was a total success!
