Planning and Partying

December 9, 2014

Today was a full day at the office, writing columns, organizing events and the morning flew by. By afternoon, I had our monthly Arkansas Flower & Garden Show board meeting with a huge group in attendance. We got a lot accomplished and are moving into some new ideas for the 2016 show, slightly more than a year away, which will be our 25th Anniversary show. But we have the 2015 show to get through before we can move into 2016. If you would like to volunteer in February 2015, we still have open slots. We will be emailing the volunteer forms this week, and again after the new year. We have lots of places for you to work, so plan to come and share your talents. Your volunteer name tag will get you into the show the entire weekend, so it is quite a bargain. afgs day 232

Then tonight was a first of what surely will be an annual event. 20 of our good lady friends got together to share a meal and a laugh. Ladies holiday night out started off with holiday trivia–and the whole room was singing their answers. Then we had a bingo game, called by Chris.girls night out holiday party.201402

Girlfriends are important in your life, and we are blessed to have many fun ones to laugh and cry with, eat a meal, play games and just spend time with. We had two generations present and everyone mixed and mingled. It was a delightful evening. People were trying to set the date for next year already!
