For 15 years I have volunteered in some way, shape or form to help our school community thrive.
I have witnessed countless acts of kindness. Unbelievable generosity. Shoulders to lean on, cry on and sit with.
I have laughed, cried, and cheered.
I have had quite the marvelous time.
Like anyone who volunteers, it has always been to make our community better.
And, it has always been “for the children.”
I have been to every school’s fair.
I have been to concerts and plays.
I have been to more sporting events than I can keep track of.
I have been part of the HHCEF and the FGL, BMMS and HHHS PTAs.
I have gone to the Fashion Show for years.
And I am one of the founding committee members of LIVE.
This is my final year of LIVE.
Blood, sweat and tears have gone into making this event THE ONE NIGHT our community comes together as one for a party. Yes, there is alcohol. Yes, there is gambling. BUT, what I find I do the most of, is dance.
I love seeing old and especially new faces join us.
I have heard every sentiment you can imagine about this event – the good, the bad, and the ugly.
It started out as a small idea that has benefited each and every PTA as well as the schools in ways that go beyond what our normal tax dollars do.
For my swan song, I would really, truly, love it if you all came.
Eat a little something.
Try a hand of 21 or a toss of the dice.
Maybe win one of our many, many raffles.
Mad props to every single person and business who sponsors or donates to this event.
But mostly, I would like you to come with me as I bid this district adieu.
I have done what I can to make it a little better than when I got here. It hasn't always been easy. It hasn't always been pretty. But is has always been worth it.
If you go out to dinner with friends regularly, I would ask you to please consider making your March dinner date, with me, and 400 of my closest friends, at Villa Barone for my final LIVE.
Saturday, March 21
7:00PM - midnight
It's ONE night.
I would love to see you.
Come on baby, dance that dance
Come on baby, let's dance tonight
