In my previous post I spoke about setting up and the many hours it took in getting ready.

Well I would like to dedicate this post to the young and not so young men that came out to help us.

Carrying goods for 150 gift boxes, prizes, sound equipment involves some serious lifting and manovering. I won’t even talk about the poles and ladders involved in getting the decor to look like a master piece.

Thank you guys from the Impact Centre, husbands, sons, good friends and brothers for your help leading up to the conference. You have helped and given of yourselves selflessly. Also I do have to commend you for the patience you practised while we were giving instructions and changing our minds quite a bit as to where the boxes and decor items were to be moved to!

We would like to thank you for showing us as women that there are stil true men and gentlemen out there and most importantly in our lives! You are amazing: Alistair, Aldrin, Angelo, Craig True, Craig Dumont, Donny, Jason, Kyle, Gary, Theo and our youngest helper Liam. God bless you guys.
