Stamping for the Special Olympics

Hi Everyone,

I’d like to share a few pictures of us volunteering for the Special Olympics and our Stamping Event to raise money to help.2012-03-31_08-04-55_984

Christina, Janet, Myself, Jessica and Gina. My Husband Darrell is in the back. We had a great time helping the athletes. 2012-03-31 09.15.34

The Athletes arriving on the track. Each team had different colored shirts!!! They had a Color Guard and a long procession of Police Cars with lights and sirens to open the festivities. 2012-03-31_09-02-56_322 2012-03-31 09.03.20 

There were hundreds of Athletes there statewide and they were so excited. Unfortunately we got rained about 1 1/2 hours into the games but still had fun. We hung out with the athletes in the Gym to see if the rain would pass…….but it didn’t!
