to anyone reading who lives in Cache Valley…

I’ve been involved in the planning of a big Neighborhood Carnival for the past month and tomorrow is the big day. My friend Michelle spent several weeks in Zambia a couple of years ago on a humanitarian trip with Mothers Without Borders. She worked directly with AIDS orphans and was very moved by their wonderful spirit and a desire to improve their lives. Michelle, her husband & 13 year old son are returning next month and wanted to take a significant financial contribution which will go to the building of a resource center and community for these kids.

So, I’m inviting you all to this Neighborhood Carnival tomorrow afternoon/evening (May 30th). The event is being held in Hyde Park at Lee’s Park next to Cedar Ridge Middle School. It’s from 3 to 7 pm and every single penny we take in in going directly to Mothers Without Borders and their efforts in Zambia. There will be a giant slide, velcro wall, bungee run, climbing wall, bounce house, carnival games, food (cotton candy, Firehouse pizza, soda, popcorn…) and a Rock Band competition where you can enter with your “band” for prizes. It should be a lot of fun!

I also need to say that a ton of work has gone into creating this carnival. Michelle has worked so, so hard on creating an opportunity for the community to get together and have fun all while supporting this orphaned community in Zambia. She is a huge inspiration to me and I’ve been so grateful for the opportunity to help in my small way. I can’t go to Africa myself but I can do my part here and I’m grateful that she has created this opportunity for me and everyone to help.

Please come tomorrow night! We’ll all have a great time!

    Our family had a GREAT time!! I loved being able to help donate to a great cause AND have such a fun time with my kiddos! My only regret was not having Rock Band at home so that our team could have had a chance. We do try to practice as often as possible but sooner or later Best Buy is going to either make us buy something, or kick us outa the store. Hurray for Michelle and all her great friends! Way to go ladies!
