what a busy weekend!

Saturday morning was busy with me taking photos at
the Ladies Breakfast at our church and also for
our church's participation in Love Fredericton.



The breakfast was prepared by a chef from a local hotel.
And it was delicious!





After this I went out to find the teams that were volunteering
with Love Fredericton. 



It was a drizzly day and cool but most were prepared.
There were free hot dogs and a free car wash at the church.



Gas was pumped.



Groceries were loaded in people's cars.


There were churches from all over the city and in outlying
communities participating in this event.


Then on Sunday we had a huge event at our church.

Day of Thunder.



This wasn't thunder from the heavens.

It was thunder from motorcycles, muscle cars,
hot rods, drag cars and classic cars.





The event started at 10:00 in the church parking lot.
There was a church service inside from 11:00 - 12:00.
(the service was even broadcast outside for those who had to
stay with their vehicles)




This was an outreach to draw people to our church and
there were almost 2000 who attended the event which went
until 3:00.  There was Motor Cross Jumping as well.
Everything was free including the hot dogs and hamburgers
and beverages served at lunch.




A lot of work by many church members went into
this event to make it such a success.




The weather was perfect with sun and cloud so not too hot.




Everyone had a super time.

So that was my weekend.  Very busy.
Very enjoyable.
Very blessed.

A new week is here.


I hope you will be blessed this week.

Pamela

  2. I have been visiting your blog. I enjoy it as I, too, share a love of photography, especially of nature. I have visited Alberta and B.C. in Canada. I live in Oregon and they are closest. Visit my blog sometime! Let me know what you think of my photographs and articles. http://poetrose24.blogspot.com/

    Wow, that sure must have taken a lot of planning.
    It looks like it was successful with a turnout of
    over 2000!
    You are proud Fredericton's.

  7. Hi Pamela
    Great community spirit and the best photographer covering the events. We had Summer Fest this weekend at the big park at the lake but it rained most of Saturday - didn't stop the fireworks though!
    Have a good week.

  12. Pamela, the churches in Fredericton certainly take an active role in the community. Your photos turned out really well, including the shot of the airborn motorcyclist. I guess you'll be "hired" again next year to take the pictures! Enjoy your day.
