Family Fun @5 on Good Friday was a wonderful event with probably our biggest attendance (about 105) and a great atmosphere. FF@5 was, as always, a Team BCUC event with helpers of all ages involved in the various tasks from prayer and planning, to cooking, helping in the kitchen, helping craft, making tea & coffee, telling the story, acting in the story, setting up and cleaning up. To all who supported the event and made it so successful — thanks from the FF@5 team: Heather Walraven, Leonie & Bob
