Oh, what a night... oh, what a weekend...
LET'S RECAP: Relay for Life was moved to the Student Rec Center (indoors due to the weather) and going into Friday night, AOII had raised the most money than any other organization. Great job, girls! They will still be collecting donations until May for the American Cancer Society.
The ceremony was beautiful and we enjoyed hearing wonderful "Lisman stories" from Juliet, Mrs. Lisman, Jodi, Manning and Sheila. The new AOII house is awesome and we were able to reminisce and visit over lunch... and of course share more "Lisman stories"! We had the pleasure of spending time with Mr. Lisman, Mrs. Lisman and Aunt Jeanne! We met TL! The scrapbook looked great, many attended the social, and at the end of the night, we ended up at Wibs! (some things never change!!)
The collegiates were a fun and impressive group of girls, who were excited to talk to the alums and really made us feel welcome.
We made new friends, re-connected with old,
and a good time was had by all. . .
