"LET ME WIN, BUT IF I CANNOT WIN, LET ME BE BRAVE IN THE ATTEMPT."

Hi Brothers,

This month I had the honor of participating in the Special Olympics Winter Games. I went to Leavenworth where the State Treasurer, Kim Washburn, and I met for the Opening Ceremonies in Wenatchee and then we volunteered at the Cross-Country and  Snowshoe Events.

The Opening Ceremonies included Edwin Bailey, former offensive lineman for the Seattle Seahawks, who made opening remarks, and four of the Seattle Sea-Gals:  Kylie, Karley, Lisa, and Nicole who cheered on the athletes and really took to Kim's dog Max. The ceremony opened up with our Fourth Degree Color Guard from Wenatchee Assembly 2648  presenting the colors!

 The Councils of District 10, led by District Deputy Anthony Hillock, assembled a huge tent for the athletes to warm up in. Hay bales were used for chairs and propane heaters provided  the necessary comfort needed for the competitors - it was 12 degrees at the start of the events and it warmed up enough to snow the entire morning,  making it a "post-card atmosphere!"  We set out snacks, drinks and lunches (by Councils 13186 & 1545) for the participants and everyone was in great spirits. We even had one of our own Knights, Eric Stewart from Leavenworth/Cashmere Council 13597, competing in the cross country event (Left picture below. Eric wore number 497).

 

If you ever get a chance to volunteer for one of the Special Olympics events make sure you snatch it up. It will change you for the rest of your life in a very positive way!
