    Are there any conference center events to which children younger than 8 years old are allowed? And is that policy strictly enforced in the case of almost eights?

  2. Christopher Bigelow on November 27, 2009 at 11:11 am

    Bring it.

  18. Doc Cleland on November 29, 2009 at 1:09 am

    I pulled a handcart 1450 miles this summer, it would be nice to be able to relax amongst the voices of the choir and the strings of the symphony. Nothing lifts a soul with more clarity than music.

    I’d love to win these tickets, here’s my entry

  20. Hight on November 29, 2009 at 10:53 am

    We have friends we’d like to take to help restore their “light” for the Savior & a Latter-Day- Prophet. The Christmas Music would also add to increasing their Christmas Spirit.

  21. Drew on November 29, 2009 at 11:43 am

    What a great opportunity for something that is hard to obtain tickets to!

  33. Alan on November 29, 2009 at 11:45 pm

    Tis the “Seasons” for giving and receiving.
    “Times” a wastin living and believing.
    I’ll picket and make treason, if.
    I don’t win the tickets for some reason.
    So see to it that I’m your choice.
    Cause at the devoitional I’ll lend voice.
    For songs of Christmas so profound.
    That Christ’s love will be felt round.

  34. Lupita on November 29, 2009 at 11:48 pm
