(Iced) Coffeehouse!

This past Tuesday, our small group organized our third Coffeehouse, this time with the theme of "Summer". It's kind of funny. At the end of the previous two events, I thought to myself, "there's no way we're going to top tonight". Yet, somehow we do everytime and this time was no different. We had two meetings in the previous months just to outline things we wanted to do and improve. I feel as though we improved on each of those fronts.

With each event, everything is pretty much free but we asked for donations to support various groups. This event was sponsoring the Ontario Pioneer Camp, a non-profit organization/camp for kids and teenagers.

For myself, it was sort of different this time around as I didn't really get a chance to kick back and relax during the evening. I was moving back and forth just checking on my fellow teammates to make sure they were okay and if there was anything needed. I was giving general help whenever needed (ie. the power kept going off on front stage. Bad news for onstage performers, but we located the source of the problem and everything was perfect afterwards). But anytime I wasn't doing anything, I was trying to make best of my time by connecting with new visitors as well as regular attenders whom I've never had the chance to talk to before. I think I spent a total of 2 minutes watching onstage performers, which was too bad for me because there was some extreme talent on the showcase.

But every 15 minutes, I tried to take some time just to scan the area to see how everything was going in the hall in general. It warmed my heart to see great community going on — it looked like everyone was having a good time. The hall was jam packed as well, it seems that with each passing event more people show up. Hoorah!

Much thanks should be given to the various people outside of our small group that lent their hands in helping us make the night happen. Y'all know who you are!
