Giveaway at Community Day

Every May, the residents of Upper St. Clair gather for a day of games, prizes, food and fun - our Community Day. My earliest memories of Community Day are when I marched as a Pantherette back in high school. Now, my kids are marching and representing the organizations they love as they smile and wave to their friends in the crowd - and throw candy. Gently, of course...

Community Day booths are another tradition that my kids love. Local organizations have games, food, activities and raffles. Some are raising money for good causes (like our two World Finals Odyssey of the Mind teams at booth #45!), and some are raising awareness. But it's a great way for me to see neighbors and friends that I haven't seen for a while.

So if you're around USC tomorrow, please stop by. There is something for everyone, and we're not going to talk about the weather - we're just going to be optimistic! 

There's even a special treat for those of you interested in The Prophecy: please visit the Wise Women Booth (near the Girl Scouts) for chances to win one of two autographed copies or a Prophecy tote bag! I want to thank Kim for the opportunity to spread the word about my book tomorrow. (Her awesome article about me can be found in the April issue of her WiseWomen e-journal.)

Hope to see you there!
