This past week was a very busy week for us. We were extremely involved in the Lamar Civitans’ annual two day fundraising event which includes a Thursday evening party followed by a Friday afternoon golf tournament. Once again it was a huge success. We had a record number of people to turn out for the Thursday night affair and with the Friday tournament we were able to raise thousands of dollars, all to benefit the Lamar area schools and students.
An event like this doesn’t just happen. It takes a lot of people volunteering their time and talents months in advance.
We used a lot of burlap and galvanized buckets in our decorating. This was the centerpiece for the fruit, cheese, and vegetable table. Leo and I created the piece, and Tara Hunt arranged the vegetables in it so beautifully. I’ll post a tutorial soon on how you can make one of these, too.
Here’s honoree Robert Windham, but no one has known him by that name. He has always been called “Shot.”
Here’s our other honoree Hamer Parnell.
This post is mainly about the Thursday night party because that’s what I’ve been working on, but Leo played in the golf tournament Friday and had a great time. Thanks again to all the volunteers, sponsors, and participants who made this year’s Silver Fox Tournament such a great success.
