Fourth of July

Spent the afternoon and evening yesterday in the nearby town of Eitzen, where I was helping out with the Eitzen Lions Fourth of July event, which runs every year on July 3-4. We're talking about a town of just over 200, drawing many thousands of people from all around.

In the afternoon a few of us set up the inflatable "bouncy houses," which I'm in charge of this year. I had some volunteers lined up to supervise them. I also worked a shift in the evening at food stand #2, down by the tractor pull track. The tractor pull was the big event of the evening.

Today I'll be involved in more activities— the Fourth of July parade, in which our Youth Fellowship has a float this year; setting up the bouncy houses again after the parade; heading over to someone's house for dinner; work another shift at food stand #1 in the evening, during the combine demolition derby; pull down the bouncy houses and store them away; and then at 10 PM, watch the fireworks.

Happy Fourth of July!
