I was so glad that I was able to help out with the Magic Valley Tennis Tournament this year. It was wonderful being able to learn more about Tennis and also meet Robert Sterk who puts together 4 to 5 tournaments a year through out Idaho. I was able to learn the ropes of behind the scenes, by the end I was running the booth by myself! I plan on helping at more of the tournaments, and maybe even becoming a tennis player myself.

A few week ago, it was the Wood River Community YMCA's big fundraiser night in Sun Valley. Dinner is served under a white tent, there are numerous auction items and lots of fun dancing. My role for the last 2 years has been table captain. I think I have one of the best "jobs" since we get to mingle with our tables and encourage them to big higher and higher for the auction items. We have a lot of fun with the folks at the tables. This was the YMCA's biggest year yet and we helped raised over $400,000!

Have a great night!

I was asked by the national Eagle Rock Kennel Club, If I would come and present the awards for their annual dog show. It was a wonderful experience to volunteer my time and to meet dog owners from across the nation. I was amazed by the event and left a TRUE dog lover!! My kids won BEST IN SHOW well..at least in my book! :) I had the opportunity to visit the Idaho Potato Museum in Blackfoot. I was able to learn a little more about out great State of Idaho. I must admit, We sure make pretty BIG potatos for such a small state :)

Two weeks ago, the Wood River YMCA was given the opportunity to have a benefit concert to raise money for youth programs in the valley. Since I'm passionate about families and love to put on community events, I was thrilled when the YMCA asked me to take on this project. Even Miss Idaho came over from Eagle to help to show support and help us raise money during this family friendly concert. She is a beautiful and gracious young lady. We raised over $200 for the YMCA youth programs that evening! I had such a great time.

Picture #3: Since our CD player wasn't working correctly for Miss Idaho, my daughter and I were in charge of holding up the microphone to the CD player. My daughter was in awe of her!
I got the opportunity to help Protect Idaho Kids with the Boise Hawks. We gave away a TON of goodies like bicycles, gift cards, rounds of golf, horse back riding and on and on during the Boise Hawks Baseball game. It was a family event and my 11 year old daughter helped us give away tickets for the chance to win some of the prizes. It was all to raise awareness for Idaho's biggest and most important asset, our children. I even made a new friend on the field!
Protect Idaho Kids also had another even at Idaho Ice World, that included free ice skating, to raise awareness and prevention of child abuse issues. We were able to give away several "goodies" again and made two little kids the happiest by giving away bikes again! For more information, please see http://www.protectidahokids.com/.

I helped out at the Library for their last summer activity with a big water activity in the City Park. It was crazy trying to fill up water balloons, especially since sometimes the nozzle would pop off of the hose and squirt every one around. I was the lucky person to get hit with water many times, but luckily it was a warm summer day. Jeremy was helping a lot with, helping the kids and running water balloons to the different stations. It was definitely a fun day, and I am sad how fast summer has come and is leaving.
Thanks for all the help,
Mrs. Twin Falls
