Success!

We had a successful Stiletto Walk this past weekend. The Chi Zeta Omega Chapter held it’s 4th annual walk benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association at Breckinridge Park in Richardson. We raised a total of $3,000.00! It was a morning full of high energy with exercise, massages, vendors on hand, information on Alzheimer and healthy snacks. I love serving in our community!

If you are ever interested in participating in any volunteer work around the Murphy/Plano area, feel free to contact me. I can help you find the perfect project to fit your needs!

It’s Officially Summer Vacation!

Summer-KC-HeroBanner-1220x450

“Summer vacation (also called summer holiday or summer break) is a school holiday in summer between school years and the longest break in the school year. Students and instructors are off school typically between 6 and 14 weeks, depending on the country and district. In America, Ireland, Italy, Greece, Lithuania, Romania and Russia, the summer break is normally three months, compared to six to eight weeks in Australia, Britain, The Netherlands, Canada, and Germany.” – Wikipedia

So are we thankful our break is 3 months long or are you jealous of Australia, Britain, The Netherlands, Canada and Germany?!!
