It was alright. I one did not like how things were not alphabetized. I was one of the first to sign up for the event, therefor, I do not know why I was last. Also I wish they had more than one photographer at the end. I was there really late.

Considering Covid has put a damper on many events, the ring ceremony was done beautifully. It was apparent that everyone worked very hard to still make this a wonderful for event for those of us receiving our ring. My last name starts with a W, and I feel like I was called in a timely manner, and received the proper amount of recognition. Thank you to all who worked very hard to make this extra special for us!
