Sometimes it is hard to find the words to truly express how grateful you are. I sometimes wish tears would come to show how appreciative I am…
This past year – Team Vogel has been embraced by the Winona Senior High School Service Learning Class. In the fall they raised over $500 for Team Vogel by selling Team Vogel merchandise at school and other fundraising efforts. I was invited to this semesters class this past week to receive funds they had raised for Team Vogel over the past months...They handed me a check for $2,000. AMAZING!
As I am typing this - it truly is not the money that strikes me the most...It is the fact that Joe's dream lives on in others. I watched 60 students embrace the "Pay it Forward" philosophy. They worked together as a team.
Thank you to all who have embraced us and continue to - we are living Joe's dream.
Along with the check - I was also given an indoor float created by some of the students that was entered in the 2012 Winterfest Indoor Float Contest. If my memory is working this float won 1st place. And... even shoots confetti. I can't wait to have it featured at upcoming events.
