|1999 was a busy year for me. I was asked to be on the
Vermont State Youth Committee. We started with the Spring Bowl-a-thon, held
Contestant's Day in June, went right into Youth camp the next weekend, travelled to NEYC
in Storrs Connecticut in July, held the fall bowling tournament in August and went to
State Session in October. My husband & I went to National Session in November
which was in Maine. We brought our niece Erin & her friend Jamie.
In 2000, we moved Contestant's Day to April. We thought this would allow the winners more time to raise money to pay their way to the NEYC. We then dove right in to planning NEYC which we hosted in Poultney Vermont this year. That made for a pretty hectic July because right after NEYC was Family Camp & a Youth Grange meeting the next 2 weekends. We had one week off & then held our fall Bowl-a-thon. The very next weekend was Youth Camp. Personally, I then had to go home & finish the signs for our fair booth which needed to be setup the Friday after Youth Camp. The next day we started practicing our Rose Drill for State Session.
Yikes! Busy as a bee - thank goodness State Session is less than 2 months away. After that, we'll start next year's drill team!
