The big weekend has arrived. Looks like it is going to be nice weather (fingers crossed).
Where have all the months gone since I first agreed to become a committee member? They seem to have gone by so fast. Each month I have been busy doing something or other.
Tonight is our final committee meeting and then all systems go for tomorrow and 22 hours of what should be a good event.
Today we were out and about seeing supporters and receiving kind donations for the event.
With six committee members all volunteers giving up their time to organise such a large event it all seems worthwhile effort.
Our house will be less like a bombsite next weekend I am sure of it, (determined to clear it up). Each committee member has been storing stuff ready for this weekend. We have been storing some biscuits and drinks, raffle prizes, and paperwork. Others have been storing large raffle prizes, paperwork, t-shirts and various other items required for camping out.
The organisation seems to have taken over the committee's homes and tomorrow the boxes will be dragged out packed into cars and delivered to where it should be.
I just hope we remember everything. I won't be blogging for the next couple of days as the computer will be the last thing on my mind.
Missi has been taken care of so we don't have to worry about our pet while we are away.
My final wish is it all goes well and that the event is a success.
So its fingers crossed as we set off for the final meeting prior to the event. This reminds me of the night before my wedding last year making sure everyone had what they required and that there was nothing else I could do except turn up.
Will I be a committee member next year? I think we will have to wait and see. I know without events like this money would not be raised to help Cancer Research UK in providing such a wonderful service so that survivors of this horrid disease can say thanks and keep on living longer.
I am signing off now.
Best wishes everyone and have a good weekend.
