Love was in the air as members and friends of Faith Presbyterian Church gathered to share fellowship and love with one another at the annual Valentine’s Dinner hosted by the Men of the Church. All gathered on the night before Valentin’s Day at the Golden Corral for a night of food, fun, food, and also food.
Rev. Ochart emceed a game of “the Not-So-Newlywed Game” where three randomly selected couples attempted to answer questions, with points being awarded when both husband and wife gave the same answer. Predictably, not all answers were the same, with some embarrassing and hilarious differences being given. One wife was asked “what sentence or phrase her husband most often repeated”, she answered “a sigh.” When asked what piece of clothing their husband wears that looks best on him, all of the wives answered a variation on ‘a blue shirt’ (though one noted that her first answer would not be appropriate for the audience and situation). The final bonus question, worth 25 points, was “If your house caught on fire, what one thing would your spouse grab before leaving?” One wife answered that her husband would grab her, but he later answered that it would be his golf clubs. Barry and Ann won the game with 35 points and were awarded a popcorn maker ‘picked especially for them.’ Prizes were awarded to the other couples as well. One of the solo attendees was also randomly selected to get a prize. All awards and prizes (including a gift card and box of chocolates for every attendee) were provided by Ace Hardware Williamston. Marriage counseling provided by Rev. Ochart.
A big thank you to the Golden Corral (Clemson Blvd. Anderson) who hosted the event in a private room, and their staff who ceaselessly attended to our needs. Thank you also to all those in attendance, and for the players who were very good sports.
Have a very happy Valentine’s Day, and join us next year!
