2012 Annual Dinner Recap
The Annual Dinner was held in Osawatomie High School Cafeteria on October 18th. We had just over 90 people in attendance. New Board Members were introduced, and we were proud to announce Margaret Hays as our 2012 Citizen of the Year. Nominated by Karen LaDuex, Margaret is a great representative and strong representative for our community. She is well deserving of this award. Congratulations to Margaret!
Wayne Simien, former KU and Miami Heat NBA Player entertained us with his inspirational message about being a person of influence in the community and stewardship. His mix of humor, inspiration, and reference to his strong faith made for a very inspirational message. He used Popeye as an example, speaking about realizing what your discontent is in your life and taking the first step to be the change you want to see. I can't speak for everyone, but I know I left that night wanting to strive to be a better person!
