Ward Camp Out
Or should we say Camp In
August 1-2
We will be enjoying 4 cabins at the Heber Girls Camp
There are 16 beds in each cabin.
The beds are wooden slats, so bring your own pads and sleeping bedding.
Should be fun.  Look forward to seeing everyone there.

  Start planning ahead for Super Saturday coming this fall. We are considering having cooking classes instead of crafts.  Please let a member of the Presidency or Christina Stanton know if there are foods that you would love to learn how to cook.  Also if you are willing to teach anything, PLEASE let us know.

Humanitarian Project
Patty Palmer is spear-heading our service project.  She is collecting things for the Navajo Nation.  She will be collecting things all year.  
There will be a basket out each Sunday, or you can give them to Patty or any member of the Presidency.  Thanks so much

Add remaining flour alternately with water, beating well after each addition. Spread evenly into prepared pan.

Cranberry-Pineapple Salad-from MaryAnne Ashton

1 (20 oz.) can crushed pineapple, in juice
2 pkg (3 oz) OR 1 pkg (6 oz) raspberry flavored gelatin
1 can (16 oz) whole berry cranberry sauce
2/3 cup chopped walnuts
1-2 apples, chopped or grated

Drain pineapple, reserving juice.  Add enough water to juice to measure 2 ½ cups:  pour into saucepan.  B ring to boil.  Pour over gelatin in a large bowl; stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved
Stir in pineapple, cranberry sauce, apple and walnuts.  Leave in large bowl and stir to mix,  when firmly set OR put into 24 paper-lined muffin cups.
Refrigerate till set.  Can remove liners to serve.  

Mint Fudge Brownies-Debbie Peters

Melt together:
1 ½ c. butter or margarine
1/3 c. shortening
1 c. cocoa
3 c. sugar

Add the following, beating well.

6 eggs
1 T. vanilla
2 ¼ c. flour

Put in large, greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-28 minutes

When cool, frost with mint flavored frosting.  Let this frosting set before frosting with chocolate frosting.  I like to put the whole pan in the freezer until the mint frosting is set hard enough to frost.
