Volunteer Banquet

We had our Volunteer Banquet where we got to cover many stories for the trip and hopefully some of those will show up in the Query as well.  Thanks to everyone that came out for a great evening of laughter and fun and it made an excellent wrap up.  There were some awards handed out to all the leaders that participated on the trip as well to mark their service, something memorable about them on the trip along with some badges denoting which particular challenges they were a part of and to celebrate their commitment to the program and the youth.  Thanks again to everyone that made this possible!
