28 participants (one short of tying the record) had a great time at La Margarita Restaurante.  The food and the venue were great!  We were able to order from the menu and pay separately.  Scott Lemasters, founder of Trailblazer Ministries and author of “Hunt of a Lifetime: An Outdoorsman’s Journey to Prayer,encouraged us with a message of giving our issues to God at the altar from the book of Hezekiah.  Scott signed his book for those who wanted to buy one.  Randy Rowley also signed his book, “Pursuing God’s Way: Meeting God In His Creation” for those who wanted to buy one.  Two door prizes were given away.
