What an honor!

Next month, I'll complete my third two-year term as president of the Blanco Good Samaritan Center, our local non-profit food pantry and thrift store. I've volunteered there since 2004. It's such a wonderful organization staffed by wonderful volunteers, and I so enjoy working there.

In December 2011, I reluctantly agreed to serve as Good Sam president after I was assured that all I had to do was "run the meetings." HA! I still laugh over THAT one! Yes, there was a bit more to the job than just that. At any rate, I truly enjoyed my six years in the leadership role and hope that some good came of the time that I spent in the position. For one thing, we as a board did purchase land in town for a new facility in the future. That took some doing!

Last month, I presided over my final volunteer meeting. To show their appreciation, board members presented me with this stunning sculpture crafted by Blue Bottle Studio! Wow, imagine my surprise! Isn't it beautiful? I think James and I found the perfect spot for it in our native gardens. Come on by sometime and see it!
