Thanks To Single Adults

I want to take a moment to thank all the Single Adults for your support of the activities that we are trying to establish in the valley and in both LDS Stakes. Also a thank you to The Morgan County News for posting events, and helping us round up our Single Adults.
We have grown in numbers each event, with new people coming all the time. We are having a lot of fun together, getting to know others and making new friends in the valley, that are in the same situations.
 I’d like to thank Dale and Barbara Thurston for making our harvest moon hayride, bonfire and potluck so successful. It was so much fun, even on a cold wet night, to come together as singles and mingle in a traditional horse drawn wagon ride. We also had a very fun talent evening together and the potluck holiday desserts  brought by our wonderful singles were delicious.
The feedback has been very positive and many have expressed how much we have needed to have activities for those single ages 31 and up.
 To be in that singles category again myself after a divorce, I have appreciated the camaraderie of others. We all have different situations, there are singles that have never been married, those that have been divorced, and those that are widows or widowers. For those of you who haven’t been in any of those situations, it’s probably hard to understand how lonely it can be, no matter how outgoing a person may appear, it’s a tough situation to be in. Many are surviving; trying to work, raise a family on their own etc. I am very appreciative for all of you in that situation, no matter how busy you are having taken time to join with the single adults.
We want this to grow and to extend to all our Single Adults here in the valley, and hope that you will join us, for more events coming. We are trying to start weekly volleyball for those interested.
Check with your individual wards for events. We also have a page on facebook for combined events under Morgan Singles Adults.  You can also email morganmidsinglesandup@yahoo.com
Thanks again for growing with us. We welcome any suggestions of things that you would like to see happen for the singles age 31 and up.
