I AM FISKATEER OF THE YEAR 2009

Today I attended the 360th birthday party for Fiskars at Epcot. When we walked into the room we were greeted by the leads. We saw tables full of snacks and Mickey Mouse ears-in Fiskars orange!

We visited and then went on a savanger hunt in the park. The winners were given Fiskars bucks. Once back inside we got a visit from Mickey Mouse-and played another game. We stood by our chairs and leads asked questions. If you answered yes, you remained standing, if you answered no you sat down. The game continued and I soon realized that I was one of only two people standing. When they asked if you had ever decorated an empty Quisnos with flowers I knew that I had won!

Susanne Fanning and Mickey presented me with an engraved pair or gigantic Fiskar scissors and the title "Fiskateer of the Year-2009"!

I was so surprised and proud that I was chosen for this honor! It means so much to me. I couldn't have done it without my Merry Band and was glad that they were there to share it with me.

Dear Sweet Maxine,

You truly deserve the honor that has been given to you. I really am so thrilled for you and only wish I had been there to see your face when you were the girl left standing and realized what was going on. You are such a dear person and an amazing lady that I am happy to know. Congrats on your well deserved title. You wear it SO WELL!
