Community kind of a week....

April 12th, 2011 at 04:22 am

Today I enjoyed a nice (free) lunch attending a Chamber meeting for work...and the guest speaker was awesome to boot.

Tomorrow, I have a lunch meeting for a leadership committee I am on that raises money for the local pediatrics ward.

Tomorrow night will make up for the freebies...I am attending a fundraiser for the local homeless teen $50 per plate. Half goes to the shelter...the other half is a very nice dinner with great company.

Friday night is the local Goodwill employee awards banquet. I try to attend this one every year. I love watching the recipients receiving their awards. They are so sincerely joyful of 'thier night'.

Ive told the story before...but one year there was this young lady all dressed up for the night. Her makeup was applied by shaky hands...and she wobbled in her heels...and she had on the most sparkly dress. You could tell she felt beautiful...and so I told her she looked pretty and her dress was very sparkly...she turned to me beaming and said "thank you, I got it in the free bin" of my all time favorite moments.

So..this week is full of community opportunity.
