Round Table was an outdoor barbeque hosted by two dear friends to the Fellows, David and Shannon Rainey. A quote after the Fellows cleaned up after dinner, "Wow! I should host dinner every week. My kitchen hasn't been this clean in years!"

Leader Lunch was hosted by one our local legends and my dear friend John Bost. LaDonna as usual went above and beyond on the food. Thank you! John, as usual, kept us all riveted with his stories and insights. 

One of my favorite pictures from the year so far

After leader lunch, we had a special kick-off meeting to celebrate our Small Groups.
