The benefit was at the community center, and it was a blast. Firehouse Quilts and Marilyn provided over 60 Kid Comfort Quilts, and I was the lucky one to deliver them. The firefighters were ecstatic.
Air Link was also there, as were numerous bands, a BBQ joint, a silent auction - and ME...
Air Link - and my oldest - he asked if Grandpa would buy the helicopter for his birthday. I can't quite remember the answer???
In this area - Air Link is one of the first ways to get injured people to the hospital - its pretty rugged terrian. The pilot of this chopper was a blackhawk pilot in Iraq. He . Was. Awesome!!
The food tables, and friends!! - the BBQ was amazing - and they had Quiche!! Many REAL men ate quiche yesterday!!!
These two musicians were entertaining as you walked thru the silent auction. I sang with them for a while. We were asked to go on tour... they wanted me to start right now, but wanted the guys to stay and play awhile.
I took it personally.
Another little blue grass band entertaining by the booths.
Air Link Taking off. I only have 3 million and 42 batrillion shots of it. I think we all might be addicted to aircraft...... plus a little boy ( who I did not know) kept shouting at me - take that picture, and take that one... He was cute!
Air Link Nurse ( and Marine Corpsman- Iraq) Left - Jake the Pilots Wife - right ( Army - Iraq)
Fire chief G( aka My Dad) and Eddie( aka the horse Doc) putting quilts into the Chiefs Vehicle for handing out to victims of the High Park Fire.
And EMT Sherry handing out a quilt to a little guy whose house was lost. Sweetest little guy in the Entire. World. Although the had quite the grip on the quilt - and was defineatly claiming it!!
I hope a lot of money was raised, I hope a lot of hearts got happier, I hope that these wonderful people are able to put their lives back together.
