The theme was "Lift off Soaring to New Heights with God." Classes were held for infant through adult with an average evening attendance of 69 which included the volunteer workers. Everyone that attended thoroughly enjoyed all the activities of the week. Dinner was served each evening with an ice cream social the last evening. Snacks were also served each evening to everyone in attendance.
A mission project, "Trucking to end hunger," was also included in the activities. This provides truckloads of potatoes to end hunger, a mission of the Society of St. Andrews. Each semi truck load of potatoes cost $50 and this was the original goal set this year. However, the goal was exceeded with a total of $512 and taught the importance of helping others.
