I think for next year I will try and plan for a better opportunity to meet with folks.
This event is successful because it brings good people together. Those of us that work hard to
do the things it takes to produce the event know that it still would not be a success if not for
all of the people who attend. So everyone who comes to this event has a hand in making it a hit!
I would personally like to thank a few folks that helped in various areas and without whom, POOPS
wouldn't have happened.
To SOONER (Carah) She has been involved with this event since the beginning. She has been in
charge of getting the Tee shirt design, taking and tracking the orders and getting them picked up,
delivered and collecting the money.
She has also been the food/lunch coordinator for all five of of the events. But more importantly to me,
she has been my friend, my sounding board and someone who keeps me grounded when I think I am
losing my mind.
Without her and a few others I wouldn't attempt to plan an event of this magnitude.
I will always be grateful!
CITYCLUCKS (Beth) Another person from whom I have always leaned on and sought advice.(I can feel her
her smile through the computer screen.)
Her enthusiasm and love for this event are a big reason that it has continued through the years.
In addition to tracking everyone is coming, she mans the welcome table and provides name tags for everyone.
On top of that she has supplied our sound system and music for almost all of the events, just as she did this year.
NANAKAT (Katheryn) What can I say about someone in her first year in our group and who stepped in to
handle the raffle project. Doing it all from encouraging everyone to donate items for the raffle, keeping track of the items,
and putting it all together on "Game Day". I can never express how much I appreciate her willingness to take this on
and the hard work she provided.
MUESKY (Rebecca) She has been on track helping track what everyone wants to buy or wants to sell through several
of our events. Maintaining and updating the list for several months. It is a big plus and gives people an idea of what
will be at our event and what others are looking for.
JCATBLUM (Christina) What an outstanding job she did organizing and doing the hard work it took for the Children's Egg Contest.
It was a huge success and her idea to create this new addition to POOPS is greatly appreciated.
Surely it will a continuing part of the event.
To everyone else for whatever it was that you may have done to make this an outstanding event, but mainly for just being there!
