Dear Temple Chasing Friends:
I enjoy hosting company and with the long-awaited Kansas City Temple dedication less than a month away, it is time to get to work. A joyous work that we are so happy to be enlisted in doing!
One thing I do before my company arrives is we talk about what they are interested in doing and seeing while they are here. As I have taken many “field trips” throughout the city, it might not surprise you that my camera has made those trips too. It has helped me to see what the city really has to offer.
I was recently asked to compile some of those field trip photographs for a Rotary International project. It is always nice to have variety, so I asked fellow field trip buddies, Dave and Carol Tallant of Dave’s Hot Rod and Auto Body Shop to pick some of their favorite photos they have taken to add to the project. It was fun selecting which should be considered and reminiscing about our fun times together over the last several years.
Many of you reading this will be making special efforts to come see the temple for the Open House and/or Dedication. So, as our guests, I wanted to share with you what neat things you might get to see while you are here.
Kansas City sometimes gets some flack for not being high on the “destination location” list. I beg to differ. We have what is considered one of the newest and finest performing arts centers in the world. We have a long pioneer history. We are the home of American Idol winner David Cook. We have world championship BBQ. We have the World War 1 Museum. And we have a temple!
Enjoy, and we look forward to seeing you!
