So Thursday night was Junior Hospitality Club’s May Give Away……and what that is- is our once yearly end of the year banquet where we give our grant money away to our non profit of the year! This year was extra special because we were celebrating our 75th year!!!! This was held at Quail Creek country club and all the tables were decorated with red roses which happens to be our club rose!!
At this dinner we also invite potential new members and I was excited to have some new friends of mine in attendance!!! And here is why I LOVE bloggin……I have a blog friend whom I have never met but she followed my blog and then I followed hers and well she came and is going to join JH!! It was so neat to meet her in person!
In this picture the blonde of the left is my new blog friend Jamie!!!! She just had a baby and I can see the start of a great friendship so check out her blog HERE!!!! Also in this picture is a good friend Jeana we are both in book club together and I am SO glad they came! I also had to other friends come and I am excited everyone had fun!
This is Becky & me…..I love this girl, she is our Chips for Charity chairman!
Here is the NEW 2010-2011 Board of Directors!!! We install our new officers and give out fun awards at this banquet every year!
Our president always gives out fun gifts to the board and this year we all got the adorable vintage aprons!! If you can’t tell I LOVE mine!!! Thanks Sarah!
This year our grant recipient was The CARE Center and they give each child who is taken from their home a Teddy Bear so they feel a little bit of comfort and I was excited to head up the first ever JH Teddy Bear Drive!! And HUGE Thank you to my help, my sister Marissa and WHS leadership class!
At this event we also had a few speakers from non profits who I asked to come and speak on how JH has impacted them over the years! Here is Josh Beasley from the YWCA, thanks for coming JOsh!
This was a special night and I am already looking forward to next year! I have one more post regarding this night so STAY TUNED!
