What a Difference a Year Makes

As I walked around the Wizard of Oz Mother/Daughter Dinner last weekend, I got to thinking about what a difference a year makes.  At the Down the Rabbit Hole event last year, it was a sea of mostly unrecognizable faces for me, when a person I knew sprinkled in here and there.  This year, every time I turned around, there was a lady that over the last year, I have come to know and care about.  As a former Marine wife, I can’t tell you how happy it makes my heart to have become a part of this community.

What a fantastic giving community it is as well, we rally around our own and take care of them.  I hope to see everyone next Monday, the 14th, at the benefit Hamburger Feed & Silent Auction to support Pete Schultz and his family as he goes through treatment for a rare kidney disease!  Don’t worry about dinner, come and enjoy some good grub starting at 5pm and going on until everyone is fed.

I also hope to see everyone at the 5th Annual HMH Foundation Spring Fling this Saturday!  Pull out those poodle skirts and grease back your hair for hopping good time.  There will be great food, kids’ games, Bingo and Texas Hold ‘Em, Silent Auctions, and the ever popular live auction!

Keep your eyes open Friday afternoon, I hear some cute bobby-sockers will be running around town handing out kids’ game tickets and just generally being cute!
