I am pleased to report that the Elders Quorum Menrichment meeting last weekend was a resounding success. Saturday evening, the brethren of the quorum were edified by copious baby-back ribs, ping pong and darts. We also spent 400%
of our annual budget.
Every quorum that I have attended has received the sweepings from the budget room floor. Relief Society: $2,000; Youth: $3,000; Elders Quorum: $50. And I am grateful for $50; I have been privy to less.
Now, I realize that the youth are important and that we need to get a house boat on the lake for them. I also realize that the Sisters need dinner once a month and a craft. Crafts are very important.
The Elders are happy to set up the chairs and move you in an out of the ward. Next year, we will be happy to receive our humble stipend. We will supplement it by those who are willing to further the cause of Zion.
