For a few years my daughter and I have been attending the Pajamas and Pearls events in Red Deer. Each year was a little more exciting then the previous, and my daughter really looks forward to our night out together …. Then very unexpectedly, I became the 2011 Recipient of the Ruby Award (Central Alberta), and am so grateful to be honored by such pillars of our community. Well, I’m so excited to be attending my 1st meeting as a member tomorrow, ….. (I know, it took me a while to remember to put the meeting dates in my calendar and just tell them I’m joining… after a year of saying so). This picture if from the 1st year my oldest daughter and I attended – (I think this was pre-cancer, – pre-fatherless – and pre-gramma and pre-Soroptimist member:) ) Thank you Soroptimist for all you mean to thousands and thousands of women and daughters around the globe.
