An AMAZING day!!! I think people in Folkston are the nicest people on earth! Melissa did sooo much to make the Awareness event really great. Her mom and Buddy are 2 of the nicest people I have ever met, no wonder Melissa is so great! Her Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, people at her church, really everyone. Also a big thank you to the lady that gave me a haircut Thursday and the lady that made gift bags to put in our cottage. So many people volunteered and donated things.
I think 11 families with WS came. Several from the Tampa area, Orlando, Jacksonville, Atlanta and MD. There were maybe 100+ people that attended. Mayor Lee attended after he coached his son’s little league baseball game (congrats on the win) and gave a speech and introduced Melissa. Melissa then gave a very heartwarming speech.Please check back here to see more pictures as they are loaded over the next few days. For pictures of beautiful Folkston please see the Trip Pics page (link at top of page) One little guy was sooo excited to have his face painted like an owl (11th picture), at the end of the day he did not want to leave (bottom picture from daytime activities) hahahahahahaha Saying “see ya later” is not so easy… Here is Jake and I and then the last picture of the day is Jared and I looking for a Shark-Snake-Elephant on google, never found one so if any of you are good with photoshop there’s your challenge : )
