Festival Time!

I just need to take a moment to brag on our Elementary School. We have a great group of students, teachers and parents!

It is an honor to volunteer with such a wonderful, creative, hardworking bunch of parents! Whenever there is a need, there is a set of hands to help. Small tasks, big tasks... somehow it gets done....

Every year, we have a Fall Festival. It is our big fundraiser of the year - games, inflatables, silent auction, live auction! (this year - PONIES!) I have always enjoyed watching it come together.... from basket assembly to coordination of donations. Game volunteer schedules and concession stand schedules.

The kids have fun, the parents have fun as we raise money to help support our students, teachers and school as a whole.

Today is that day! I covet your prayers for a day full of fun, laughter and safety. I pray for generous hearts, willing spirits and an air of enthusiastic cooperation.

I will be wearing my (figurative) hip-waders, fire-fighter hat and police officer badge - and the full armor of God. Pray for me that I will be an example of His grace and love during my day of service. May I let Him lead. Speak through me. Be with us...
