South Bend Branch Olympics

During community celebration week in mid-September, the South Bend branch hosted a day of field games called the Branch Olympics, along with a pie baking contest. This year, Jennifer Busk took the overall prize in the pie baking contest, while Patrick Pingel's area won the branch olympics.

    Great Video! What a JOY it is to see so many familar faces.
    Makes you wish you were there. Happy 39th!

    So fun to see so many friends and family! It still bums me out that they didn't start doing this until after we left. I know that my husband could win that pie baking contest! ;)

    Thanks for letting us see "us" in action! We had such a great time. John Z really planned a wonderful day for us. I think for our 40th year Celebration the rest of you (the other Branches of the POP) ought to join us for the weekend! Now that would be a GREAT FUN TIME!

    Awesome video. We smiled and laughed the whole time. Wish I could've been a judge for the pie eating contest :).
