It was busy and fun at La Europa over this past holiday! Here are a few of the highlights:

On the evening of Wednesday, July 3rd, our girls on levels four, five, and six were able to attend a concert at The Canyons ski resort. The concert featured the music of a local soul band, fronted by a member of La Europa’s staff. The remainder of the girls had a relaxing evening at the residence.

On Thursday, July 4th, some girls went on an optional morning hike to Donut Falls, which is located in Big Cottonwood Canyon. After a beautiful scenic adventure, the hiking girls joined the rest of the community for a matinee of Despicable Me 2, which had just opened. After enjoying a barbecue, we all headed over to Spring Mobile Ballpark to watch The Salt Lake Bees take on the Tacoma Raniers and watch the fireworks after the game.

We started off Friday morning with a graduation of one of our wonderful girls. She was well-loved, so it was an emotional, yet happy time. Later in the day, the girls went to the pool and came back to get ready for our final activity that evening.

Our final activity was to attend the Hale Center Theater’s production of Ragtime on Friday night. The Emmy-winning musical tells the story of turn-of-the-century America through the eyes of several groups of people. It is infused with European, ethnic, gospel and ragtime influences, and includes historical figures like Harry Houdini, Henry Ford, Booker T. Washington and Emma Goldman. You can watch highlights of the performance here. The production was powerful, and the girls really enjoyed it.
