I hope everybody had a Merry Christmas.
I found myself thinking too much about this event instead of enjoying my time with the family. It’s becoming a little bigger than I was expecting, but I think I’m up to the challenge. I have a lot of help.
I’ve begun working on my Thank You list.
I figure at the end of the event, I’m going to have to get up on the microphone and thank those who contributed the event.
This is a very important part of the ceremony. I’ve been in the position before where I’ve put in a lot of work toward some project, and never even received a simple thank you. I know it’s not required, but a little gratitude goes a long way, especially if I might need help in the future.
Anyway, here’s my list so far. I expect to add more and even delete some names if they don’t come through.
1. The donors / participants
2. The volunteer staff – identifying the separate groups or clubs who helped, along with their advisers.
3. The Fire Department
4. The custodial staff
5. The DJ
6. The T-Shirt guy
7. The principal
8. The district dignitaries
9. Any other dignitaries- city, county, etc.
10. My student and her mother who came up with the idea and helped promote it.
11. Who am I missing?
Like I said, this is probably one of the most important parts of any ceremony or event. It would be great if I was able to hand out some kind of certificate or plaque, but since I can’t, I need to do the next best thing – publicly show my gratitude.
Again, if you would like to donate to this cause, it would be greatly appreciated. The information can be found at the website I set up:
