6/26/2012 Celebrating Achievements at the Children's Awards Banquet
At the 26th Annual Children's Awards Banquet, held at St. Francis Church, we honored our children for all that they have accomplished in the past year. From winning debate tournaments to learning to swim, our kids have been growing by leaps and bounds, achieving things they never thought possible! Thanks to everyone who joined us to celebrate "Growing Up!"
We would also like to thank the evening's sponsors, the Cypress Belles Chapter of the National Charity League, which provided beautiful decorations and wonderful volunteers who served our guests, and St. Francis Episcopal Church, which provided the evening's dinner, along with servers and the venue. The night would not have been possible without you!
