      Fantastic! How did you like it? Are you OK with speaking or were you nervous? I am a HOH for the American Cancer Society and speak regularly at Relay events. Ours was last Friday, spoke to that group as usual too.

      I was good -not too bad. I am getting better at speaking in front of groups. Our Relay was this weekend, the 14th and 15th. Great time. Did my first survivor lap of course. Was emotional but great with all my friends and family there supporting me. For the next two years, me and two of my team members will be co-chairing the whole event so I am excited about that. Will be a lot of work but I have lots of ideas and things I want to do. I am feeling so much better these days and it has been great to get back to my routine. I am very blessed!!

      That's great Beannie. You fast tracked your way to the Chair! Good job, yes it is a lot of work, but just remember the old adage about how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

      Have had a team in the Relay for eight years now. I am the one out of the core group to develop cancer so it gets a little more personal for me and for my team. We support each other all the way. Great group. And like I said we will be chairing event for the next two years. I think we have done every committe in one capacity or another so this was next step for us. Should be a great experience.

      Well then that changes the whole "fast tracked" comment earlier. Thanks for your participation and dedication.

      Yea we have been very active with the committee for the past seven years of participation. I did corporate sponsors this year but I have done luminaries, kids walk, activities, etc. It is hard work all right, but I enjoy it.

      Looks like a great bunch ready to Relay Big! What did you have in your camp to raise funds for? We had a huge smoker and had all forms of BBQ, including our World Famous, BBQ Fried Pies.

      Our team only did chocolate dipped cheesecake and chocolate dipped bananas and drinks and water. However, the cheesecake went like hot cakes. We even had to go to Food Lion and clean them out and sold all of that. Even made the Channel 12 news - Skip Waters was the emcee and he took some back to studio and they were eating it on the air. Was great!!

      Hey, the chocolate dipped cheesecake sounds like a keeper. We didn't have anything sweet in our camp, file that one away.
