A couple other highlights from the weekend:
-Barb Hafeman admires her turquoise wristband – she had to wear it to prove she was of legal drinking age.
-Watched the Hafeman ladies play the German Boot drinking game, complete with a flick of the Boot. Fail to flick the Boot with your finger before passing it … and you drink again. It was a great “after church” tradition.
-Homemade hats were fun.
-Hats with pins were very fancy.
-Thanks to Modern Woodmen for a super donation to Habitat for Humanity Dodge and Washington Counties.
