Don't you just love this banner??? We celebrated Pro Bono and Community Service Week and this was our logo this year.
Every day this week some type of event was held providing opportunities and learning experiences all designed to get more people involved in volunteering. There were lunch & learns, trips to the food bank, pro bono bingo, pro bono-what would you do (an incredible presentation from 9 U.S. locations), volunteer recognition event, presentation of a scholarship and more. I worked on the celebration calendar for a couple of months so it was great when the date finally arrived. Today was the last day and for the finale, a team of us painted and landscaped an elderly woman's house. The transformation was amazing and we were all proud of the end result. No matter how busy things were, and no matter how tired I was as I got up each day, I was reminded throughout the week just how lucky I am to be able to help so many people in the community every day. And I'm so proud to work with some of the best people too which makes my job an even greater blessing.
Now I think I'll go get a manicure and relax tonight.
