Youth Fest 2005

BLACKFOOT, Idaho — The testimonies of more than 1,200 Southeast Idaho youth were strengthened July 9 during the Youth Fest 2005, a multi-stake youth event hosted by the Blackfoot Idaho East Stake. For the event, youth and their leaders came together to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the organization of the Church and to commemorate the 200th birthday of the Prophet Joseph Smith. They participated in service projects and a devotional and then presented dance numbers prepared during the past several months. Elder John H. Groberg of the Presidency of the Seventy and Elder Gerald Mead, an Area Seventy, spoke to the youth.
