Make Your Own Sundaes? Yes Please!

A lot has been going on in "MAAV Land" so I thought I would do an update post to fill you in (and yes it includes ice cream sundaes)!

The MAAV Walk Committee has been very busy meeting every other week and getting walk sponsors.  We were also in the local paper.  If you ever want to feel important just volunteer with MAAV - you'll be in the newspaper a lot b/c they are always covering the outstanding work MAAV does in the community!  

We also announced that Massachusetts First Lady, Diane Patrick will attend the walk and receive this year's Advocacy in Action award.  Read the article here to learn more!

MAAV's annual domestic violence awareness bracelet is very popular this year.  They are selling fast and are a great deal at $20 each with a donation going to MAAV for each one!  Let me know if you would like to purchase one.  Oh and by the way they were designed by ME!!!!  

The bracelets made the local paper too!  Go here to see that article.

Last week we had our Captain's Kickoff party for the walk.  It was a make your own sundae party with plenty of topics!  I served the ice cream but don't worry I also found time to sample a little bit of EVERYTHING!!!  Ha!  This girl loves ice cream!

It was a great event and we are very excited for the upcoming walk which is Sunday, October 28th.  I'll be walking with the Hallmark Health team but all are welcome to join.  Let me know if you are interested in joining my team or starting your own team.  

MAAV is such a great organization and makes such a difference in this community and so many other local communities.  I am so proud to be on the Board of Directors of an organization that does such excellent work and is so well respected by so many!
