And the Amount Is...

Good morning, everyone. Hope you are having a great holiday weekend so far.

First off, I would like to say that I am sorry for not blogging in the last two weeks. It has been a hectic two weeks trying to get things ready for the fundraiser that I held at my church, and speaking at the church that I work at  for their fundraiser for me. I have to admit that I was a little nervous about what I was going to talk about, but hey, my family was there to support me. Thank God for family.

I got through the talk just fine. The podium was there and I was able to support myself by holding onto it. The luncheon was great. We had spaghetti, salad, bread, dessert, and drink. As of right now, I was given a guesstimate of about $2400. Yes, can you believe it? I couldn't and I am still trying to comprehend the amount. And the total for my fundraiser was $1175. So all together, as a total, that would come to $3575. This really supersedes the total from last year's total...$2500.

Way to go, frie…

Supporting a Great Cause

Good morning, everyone. I hope you all are doing great for it being a Monday morning.

This past week has been a whirlwind for me. It is getting closer and closer to my fundraisers and still in the process of getting things together for these events. They both are in two weeks. I will be having both on the same day. That's just how things fell into place. These fundraisers will be on Sunday, May 18. The first one (a spaghetti luncheon) will be from 12:00 until 2:00 pm while the second one (a fundraiser benefit) will be from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm.

The first fundraiser will be at First United Methodist Church in Dallas, NC. This is the church that I have worked for for six years as of the 12th of May. I have been blessed to have such a great church as a work place. The congregation and the pastor have been so great, and I hope to be here as long as the last secretary - 32 years. The meal that they have planned consists of spaghetti, salad, dessert, tea, and coffee. This sounds good, …
