I saw how much work goes on behind the scenes, especially when there is last-minute fallout. Amy was organizing cheer station #2, but got the word this morning that the entire volunteer group for cheer station #1 pulled out and wasn't coming. Can you imagine?! Amy rerouted a few of us to the empty cheer station. When we got there, it looked like this:
We had a table and chairs, a trash bin, box with table cloth & miscellaneous items, lots of water, and a porta-potty. Amy, Sally, and Lynn brought bubbles, signs, water dishes for dogs, leis, pinwheels, and some noisemakers. We got busy setting everything up.
Lynn and Sally got ready with their signs and Freddy was poised to hand out bubbles. Josh and I took on water duty. I also sent a text to Rick to let him know we could use some extra hands and bug spray, and Rick headed over to help us out.
|Cheer station #1 - in need of cheer!|
|Lynn and Sally put out water and bubbles|
|Freddy takes charge of water for the dogs|
|Josh sets up the music while |
Freddy carries buckets of bubbles
|All ready to go!|
|Whoops, are they backwards?|
|Ready to hand out bubbles|
I was grateful to have the opportunity to help others and it helped to take my mind off of my vacation mishap. Win-win, and fun to boot!
