The Pattaya International Ladies Club sponsored a Family
Fun Day at Sea, Sand and Sun Resort on Sunday, April 25. Approximately 70
people attended, including several orphan children who are being cared for
by Mercy Ministries.
The day began with the children constructing sand
sculptures. The first place winners were Isabelle and Alexander de Vries who
are the grandchildren of PILC member Dinnie de Vries and her husband Willem.
The second and third place winners were Milly and
Annabelle Kershaw who are the children of Jan and Jonathan Kershaw. Jan is
also a member of PILC.
The children also enjoyed a Tug of War rope pull and 2
hours of fun on the Banana Boat water ride.
Everyone enjoyed the wonderful barbeque buffet that was
catered by the resort. Even though it was very hot, the attendees enjoyed
the sea, sand, pool, games, food and friendship.

cream sure tastes good on a hot day, even if you have to wear some of it!

sensation of having sand between the toes.
orphan children who are being taken care of by Mercy Ministries had a fun
day to remember.
a sand castle takes teamwork and concentration.

This tug-o-war is hard work. Maybe I’ll just lie down for a while...
