Happy Fourth of July

The Eldersburg Ward had their annual Fourth of July breakfast this morning. The bishopric cooked pancakes and sausage and the ward members brought fruit, muffins, doughnuts and breakfast casserole.

After the flag ceremony June and I led everyone in patriotic singing.

Everyone sat under the covered picnic area, but there was no rain, and the weather had cooled off nicely from last night's storm.

I led the Primary in the songs My Country and My Flag. I had substituted in Primary for the past two weeks and took that opportunity to teach the children the songs.

Della Reese Jackson favored us with a beautiful rendition of Amazing Grace. She really takes after her namesake!

To wind it up the Primary kids waved flags and made a little parade through the audience. We had Lela and Camryn playing flute and recorder. And, thanks to Colette Banks for learning to play the accordion in one week! What a fun celebration!
