Conference was way beyond my wildest dreams (or the nightmares of no one showing up!) could ever have been. Over 455 of you came, interacted, voted in new Bylaws, flashmob danced, partied, gave any lots of money and gave lots of money to Fellowship!
I can't thank you all enough for these last two years. I said at conference that I asked and you gave....I asked for blankets and you gave over 2500 in your communities and to our VRA winner, Sarah. I asked for books for our schools and I came home with 1500 books that I put labels into with our Region name and distributed around our region to low income schools. And the biggest to me was I asked for support for our Founder Region International Project- Build the School in Kenya. I was hoping for $5,000.....you raised over $15,000! Again, Founder Region goes way beyond in what we think we can do. I can't thank you all enough. Thanks to you, girls will not be carrying water jugs on their heads in the village.....they will be going to High School. Everytime I think about it, my eyes tear up. I will keep everyone in loop about how things are going.
All my love and respect go out to each and everyone of you for all that you do- thank you for being you!
Love, Governor Linda Sue
