Thank you so much to all of the wonderful volunteers who made SouthFest happen! With help from many parents, we managed once again to provide our seniors with a fun and safe place to go after the prom. It was a great evening, with fantastic decorations, great food, and lots of fun activities. It’s only possible to put on this kind of event with the support of all of you who showed up to decorate, chaperone, serve food, check the kids in and out, work at the casino tables, and clean up. It was a late night but it was fun!
Special thanks to Heidi Gambino and Elisa D’Andrea who worked as a remarkable two person team to pull together the wonderful decorations. Also a huge thank you to Andrea Cymbalista and her fantastic team who solicited a truly awesome spread of food and then set it up, served it, and cleaned it up. This was Andrea’s last year doing SouthFest and she will be greatly missed. Also, heartfelt thanks to Michelle Mischke and Noreen Boyce, our former SouthFest co-chairs, who shared their detailed knowledge and helped us to set up and manage the event (despite the fact that they had seniors to photograph and get off to the prom!). Noreen spent most of the afternoon helping us to set up, and Michelle stayed up all night at the party and did not leave until the clean up was done.
Looking forward to seeing many of you next year!
