Thursday night was our Boy Scout Council's annual dinner. Many awards are presented to the top performing districts in our Council and the top volunteers. Last year I was presented with the volunteer award. This year, upon finishing my first year as the District Chairman, my team and I got to receive the top GOLD District Journey to Excellence award on behalf of our District.
While we went up to receive the award from our Council Key Three - this award is really for all the unit leaders, district leaders, and especially the paid professionals who work so hard throughout the year to make sure we meet or exceed our goals to deliver the best possible program to the youth in our District.
Now I have to confess something that all my friends already know, but you my readers, may not. I knit everywhere. You're probably thinking "Yeah - I'm a knitter. I do that too." But seriously, I mean I knit e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e. At our dinner table I took pictures across the table of my friends, then passed my phone and asked them to snap some photos of my side of the table. What was I thinking. My two friends and troublemakers...
Bill and Dennis were laughing and taking pictures. I was chatting - no surprise - and didn't really pay attention to them.
...until later when I saw this very serious-minded picture of yours truly knitting away. Look at how fast those needles are flying. They're a blur!
In case you didn't see that, Bill and Dennis took a close-up, too.
Ha! Thanks guys. You crack me up.
So what was I knitting all night during the annual dinner? Why a Boy Scout fleur-de-lis dishcloth of course!
