We just had a ward party Saturday. It was the first of a series of three parties that our ward will be having this summer, one per month. We had catered Mexican food and it was up at a member's ranch. There were horses, chickens, geese, goats, a llama, ducks, and cows. These parties are what we have been using to get in the door with nearly everyone we know, and some we don't, and we actually had a good turnout, despite all the people who we invited that did not exactly come. Which was sadly all of them. However, there are two more parties this summer and we did have a few people that told us that they could not make it to the first one, but would try to make it to the second one. For the last three weeks we have been going around and giving out the flyers for the party and inviting people. Nearly everyone that was already active members came, including recent move-ins.
Sorry that this is it, have a nice day!
I will do better next time
