#31 Tupiza District Tree Planting Service Project

On saturday. November 17th the members of the District planted 105
trees along the river in Tupiza.  
There was a good turnout of members to dig holes and help out.
It was a beautiful day.  We had young children and older members
that wanted to help.

picks and crowbars.

They were delicious.

Sister Boyce helped President Hurachi (District President) pass
out the hot empanadas.  This was just a late breakfast snack for
