Then, Wednesday and Thursday, the whole Starfish staff was at the Indiana Youth Institute Youth Workers Rock conference. The conference was great, learned a ton and heard a keynote address by Marie Osmond. There are no photos of her because the program specifically said no photography of her was permitted.
Today is digging out day and figuring out a plan of attack for next week's work.

This is the space where we held the fundraiser reception. It's a way cool room and we appreciate the owners being so gracious to let us use it for our event.
We had several Scholars at the event, taking part in greeting guests, playing background music and helping with clean-up. Here are Keith, Monroe, Deidre and Serene, four of our great Scholars.
And yes, me. I was all over at the event, helping with food and sound system stuff and overseeing our student greeters. But fellow VISTA Deandra caught me for a photo.
We did have a successful event which brought in enough funding to make having the reception worth it. And I think there are mini-quiches leftover in the office fridge...
