|The pasta dishes and desserts were delicious|
and the tables so festive!
In the spring of 2005, I attended a woman's event at our church called Faith and Flowers. I was so impressed when I walked into the event! There was a large attendance. The tables and stage were decorated beautifully. The speaker at this event was Cindy Brinker Simmons, daughter of Norman Brinker. Norman Brinker started a charity in honor of his wife Nancy's sister, The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
I remembered this night wondering how I had missed being such a part of this special evening. Soon afterwards I started attending planning meetings for this annual event and worked at the event.
Fast forward three years, in 2008 when I was working full time, I received an email asking me if I would chair the 2009 Faith and Flowers. Me? My first response was that I could not possibly do this, I was busy working, I did not know how to do this, etc. Clint reminded me I would not have been asked to head the event if there had not been some faith that I could do it. I did it and it was so rewarding!
Thursday evening I attended the 2011 Faith and Flowers. The attendance has greatly grown and it was a wonderful eveing. Local tv and radio host Jody Dean was the keynote speaker. He is now the voice of the Dallas Cowboys.
|Party favors were these neat bracelets ... in many different styles. |
It was good that approximately 250 women were given these bracelets!
There was a long line when I arrived.
Jody Dean is a dynamic speaker!
This was an encore appearance at
Faith and Flowers.
|The table flower arrangements were to go |
to a local nursing home after the event.
A great idea!
|Bob Hill keeping the Methodist Men in line ... it has|
become a yearly tradition that they help serve and do
other kitchen duties. They do such
a great job, thank you guys!
|I didn't get there in time to make photos of the food|
before they began serving.
