Last Saturday we had Game Night for the Katowice Branch and visitors. Gosia, our Relief Society President, was the organizer of the event, and she did an outstanding job. Everyone had a great time, and some new friendships were formed while enjoying some good times together. Everyone seems to enjoy time to relax from work, school, or whatever else occupies our minds, and just laugh and talk together. Thanks, Gosia, for such a great evening!
The evening started out with everyone introducing themselves by throwing a ball of yarn to a person in the circle, that person would introduce his/herself, then toss the ball to someone else. An interesting web was created by the end of all the introductions.
“Who Am I?” was next on the agenda. Adrian was Napoleon, Sylvia was Angelina Jolie, and Nicholas was Puss in Boots. Silvia and Nicholas are currently being taught by the missionaries.
Who can do the best make-up? Zachary did a great job on Dorota, and Rafal was quite artistic with Ania. Zachary was a visitor who came with his mom and dad, and Ania was also a visitor that night.
Michal provided arms for Alex that night, and he actually did a pretty good job. Alex’s teeth are getting quite clean here. Michal, who happened to be in Katowice on game night, is a recent convert and is a member in Kielce, just north of Katowice. Alex is being taught by the missionaries and comes to our English class.
Those arms even helped him devour a whole banana!
After the group games, everyone went to a table for various board games.
This table was playing a rousing game of Posse.
At the far end the game of Jenga brought a lot of howls and laughs. Uno was a little quieter. In the foreground, Karolina and Konrad come off and on to our English class, and next to Konrad is Robert, Zachary’s Dad. They were visitors that evening, and we were so glad they joined us.
This was the Scrabble table Everyone at the table was visiting for the evening, except for Rafal, who is in our Branch Presidency. The three women at this end of the table and Rafal are students studying English in one of the universities here. He invited the three of them to join us that night, and we really enjoyed getting acquainted with them. The Reeds challenged them to an English game of Scrabble after they had played in Polish. We barely squeaked out a win at the game’s conclusion! Their English is quite good.
And here is Ola who worked with Sister Reed for part of the evening in the kitchen making pancakes. The utensils disappeared into the soapy dish water as soon and I could set them down! By the end of the evening the kitchen was spotless, thanks to Ola.
