event was Merri’s 40th birthday celebration. Crepe paper streamers and
other decorations were hung in such a way the room was transformed into a carnival.
Game centers placed around the room kept the party goers entertained as they
moved freely from one to the other. Some spent their time in the beanbag toss
area, while others played Pin the Party Hat on Merri.

A Funny Picture booth kept everyone laughing as hats, boas, glasses, and other paraphernalia truly did make for some funny pictures. “Dottie” and “Jewel,” Christian clowns, helped convey the carnival theme. Balloon hats and animals helped put everyone in a festive mood. Bingo and line dancing were popular, too. For the last activity, all the guests went outside for a Silly String fight. What a battle!
