A Presidential Award

As most of you know, I volunteer at the Sheriff's Office. I go for four hours each week. After you volunteer 250 hours, you are eligible for a Presidential Award. By the end of 2007 I had logged that many hours. In 2008 I received a certificate from Sheriff Brown for the 250 hours. Today we were to attend the County Council Meeting because the sheriff had arranged for us to be presented with these Presidential Awards. I think that Dan Grayson has more hours than I do. But, Dan was having some kind of a surgical procedure and couldn't be there. So, that left me being the one in attendance with the most hours. I was presented with a framed certificate, which had a letter signed letter from President Bush, and a silver pin. That means I have at least 499 hours so far. The others received a different colored pin along with the framed certificate and letter from the President.

Is it okay to be proud of yourself??? If it is, than I am. If now, forget you read this.

Of course you should be proud of yourself! Good job!

p.s. I met the nicest lady tonight and I bet you'd like her. If I ever get in touch with her again I'm going to invite her to knit night... she didn't ever say she was a knitter, but I just bet she is.

Hey, Anna May! Of course you should be proud of yourself when you do a good job... and you have plenty to be proud about!
Congratulations!
Aren't you glad your award was signed by Bush instead of the South Side Stooge who is in the White House now??

Yes, Roseanna. Someone said that it is nice that it is written black on white instead of white on black. Thanks for the comments.
