Friday August 14th was a whirlwind day full of excitement. I was invited to the Littleton Senior Center to perform in their Variety Show. The show raises money for the NH Food bank. Last year they collected one ton of food and they are well on their way to reaching that amount again this year. I was honored to be a part of such a great event and will cherish my memories of the caring people of Littleton NH. PS I was able to visit their famous penny candy store---it has been in the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest penny candy counter!
Monday August 10th was the Miss NH Golf Tournament! There were about 10 title holders there and we had so much fun. Last year the event raised over $20,000 and it is one of our biggest fund raisers. Marc really puts on a good tournament and all of the participants have a fun time. Erica and I were on the Vegas Hole where the golfers could double their money if they bet and got their ball on the green. We raised somewhere around $1,000 just on this hole!! We had so much fun with the golfers!

Janine and I want to thank everyone who made Katrina's Runway Gala possible. It took a lot of planning to pull the show off and we were so happy with the show. It was a huge turn out we had plenty of food and desserts and it really meant a lot to Katrina. Thank you for everyone who brought a food item and for everyone who came. We raised $100 in donations that was contributed to the Children's Miracle Network Platform. We wish Katrina luck in her journey at the Miss America's Outstanding Teen Competition.
