Every year on Halloween (Or, Reformation Day if you’re really cool), we host the “Hallowiener” at our house. Basically, we sell hotdogs and drink and give all the money to charity. Our neighbourhood comes together and donates all the food so that every dollar we raise goes to the cause. This year, we were very happy to help out our local health centre in their project to buy a new HandiVan. Our one night spooktacular event raised $1073.00 and we sold 160 hotdogs! We had several great donations to the cause that we are super thankful for.
Here’s a couple of snapshots really from the event. All with the FujiFilm X-PRO2 and the 23mm f/2 lens. I was cooking hotdogs all night so I didn’t really have time to take many photos. 😂 The halloween pumpkin shot at the top of the page was light with the candle inside the Jack O Lantern and a little handheld pocket flashlight (the S1 mini Baton from OLight) feathered just enough to add some shape. That little flashlight never leaves my pocket, I carry it everyday. It’s the most useful item ever. Highly recommend it! 😎
And I was able to make the presentation to the HandiVan project board today at the hospital. 😎👍
Canadian Lutheran World Relief is running a campaign to collect sweaters for Syrian refugees. With winter quickly approaching, they will certainly be needed. Our church in Oxbow and the community at large participated and we gathered over 550 sweaters in 33 boxes for the cause. 😀 Some volunteers from St. Peter Lutheran in Oxbow worked together to box them all up and get them ready to make their voyage east. It is our heartfelt prayer that these sweaters do get to Syria and that they can be of some comfort to these people caught in the civil war. Lord have mercy!
