The afternoon was filled with lunch, inspirational speakers, prizes for the young ladies, and a make up tutorial by the event's spearhead —Dawn Schultz.

I spoke to her last year, about her first effort, and wasn't sure how she was going to pull it off as a newcomer to town and especially with such little time to spare. With shear determination she did, though it was a modest affair in 2014 compared to 2015. I can only imagine how much more it will grow by next year.
I asked Dawn who the key volunteers were, and she mentioned Linda Harris along with her husband Bruce Harris. There were more than 25 volunteers that made the event possible. Forty-three girls were in attendance for the event.
A big thank you to Dawn, Linda, Bruce and the other volunteers that made our city just a little bit nicer.
On a personal note, I was happy to be invited to this event. I was the only male above the age of four there. I got to sit at the Mom's Table and sip coffee and have a plate of delicious food that was provided. I was keeping a low profile and was glad that my sweet wife Grace was there to take the photos. Nothing worse than some old guy sticking a camera into the faces of teenage girls... talk about the creep factor when that happens. ☺
