I've been a busy girl here in Jamestown and the surrounding areas. It's been an incredible ride! This week will mark Week 4 of college. I hope you are doing well!
Yesterday I traveled to Bismark, ND with the Concert Choir. We were invited to perform at the Fine Arts Festival. I was very excited to experience my first college choir performance. We spent the morning rehearsing and enjoyed a lunch provided by the church we were performed. The choir sang five numbers for a very receptive audience. I beamed when the audience stood after our program concluded. My first experience exceeded my expectations.
After returning to Jamestown I eat a quick supper, and got ready to head to Moorhead for the Miss Moorhead and Miss Red River Valley Outstanding Teen Pageant. At 6:25 I arrived at Moorhead High in perfect time to find my seat and enjoy the show. Congratulations to Ali Vali, Miss Moorhead 2011 and Ellie Bauchmann, Miss Red River Valley Outstanding Teen 2011. I am excited for the both of you! It was great to see familiar faces and enjoy the company of my pageant family. :) After the pageant I enjoyed a meal at Perkins with my great friend, Bailey and headed back to Jamestown.
I challenge you today on the anniversary of 9/11 to appreciate all that surrounds you. Your family, friends, health, and home can be changed in an instant, just as it did for many on 9/11. Have gratitude for the people who sacrificed their lives and for their families who live without them. May we never forget the heros of 9/11.
