This is the last in a series of posts for Momalom.com’s Five for Ten challenge.
I said yes last night. So did the voters in my school district. First, my yes. Then, the voters’ yes.
My school district has a PTA Council which is a PTA that involves representatives from the four buildings – two elementary schools, one middle school and one high school. The PTA Council holds an annual ice cream social each year on the same day as the annual budget vote. There is food, ice cream, art from the various buildings, music from the various performance groups. It is a wonderful event and one that I look forward to annually.
Last night, the president of the Music Boosters was looking for someone to handle tickets for the Music Boosters’ annual Chicken Barbeque which is the first Sunday in June. I said yes. I will take care of the ticket needs. She handed me a folder with what is needed and I will do this.
Then, I went home for a little bit. I went back to the middle school to be there when the budget votes were counted. The voters in my school district said yes overwhelmingly. The voters approved a budget that was hard work to develop. The voters approved the purchase of three new buses. The voters elected Bob Norton with 1,000 votes and me with 995 votes. We were both elected to the Board of Education for three year terms.
When was the last time you said yes? Was it an easy decision? Do you say yes more than you say no?
