The retreat was held at Fredericksburg Inn and Suites, Fredericksburg, TX. This month was a couples only event which provided more ‘class time’ for attendees to share experiences and learn from each other as well as the chaplain.
Friday after enjoying the build your own sandwich and banana split bars everyone settled back to enjoy T.J. Smith entertain “with a little help from his friends”. T.J. is very good at impersonating voices-those are his ‘friends’. He is also very generous to donate his time and talent to entertain and visit with men and women who have given so much for this country.
Around 11:30am Saturday food started arriving for lunch. Those First Baptist’s really know how to eat!! They served some of the best smoked chicken I’ve ever had! On top of being delicious (everyone agreed) it was healthy! Ok, Ok, so healthy doesn’t exactly fit in the same sentence as pecan pie and brownies but DELICIOUS does. Anyway, about 3 pm class was over and couples were free to go on a date and practice some of the things they had been talking about the past two days.
We decided this was an ‘international’ R&R because there were attendees there from: Italy, Germany, Porto Rico, Guam and the U.S.
