My sincere thanks to fiskars for having Fiskateers. Rebecca is truly a fabulous Fiskars ambassador. By having Rebecca at our Barboursville crop, we were able to have almost all fiskateers at our 2nd annual charity Crop for Lupus. Rebecca gave up time with her family and drove to Barboursville. Her visit was listed on the Fiskateer calender. We had Fiskateers from WV, Virginia, Ohio and Michigan. I truly think and hope that everyone had a wonderful time. The laughter and the atmosphere in the room was fun and contagious. I have never planned anything that I have been prouder of. Now, I had much help. My friends are priceless and my second family.
We not only had a wonderful time, but raised over 2,000.00 for the National Lupus Foundation.
Thank you to everyone who came. Thanks to my landlord who gave me a huge space so that we could have so many people. I am reflecting today on the crop. We just got home from cleaning and carrying tables and chairs back to about everyone I know. Today I feel blessed that I did something my brother in law, who died of lupus, would be proud that I did. Truthfully, that is the thing that makes me happier than anything.
