Summer time is the season for BBQ  with tasty food, games, and most importantly time with family and friends. Now consider sharing this festive time with 500+ family and friends! On Saturday, Aug. 27, local members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were able to spend a beautiful summer day together enjoying such times at their location in Westlake.

Stake President Michael Snyder, who acted as Grill Master, and his committee organized this Family Fun Day for local members and their friends. Many friends were able to reconnect with each other throughout the Cleveland area. Fellowshipers of all ages delighted in a water balloon toss, corn hole competitions, bubble making, and volleyball. The youngest ones enjoyed their time in a bouncy house while the tweens cooled off in a refreshing dunk tank. Everyone enjoyed homemade root beer floats!

The Family History/Genealogy Center located inside the church building was open during the BBQ. Genealogy is an important aspect of the LDS faith. The LDS church believes linking past and present family members together strengthens the family unit.

It was a great day to close out the summer season with family and friends.
