Orlando…Chapter 5

SWE 10 Orlando Ice Cream Social

Well it is day 5 and the shuttle is still keeping us on tenterhooks.  The latest info is that it is ready to launch around 3:30 EDT tomorrow, Thursday November 4.  However the weather may not cooperate.

A lot of activity today.  Marsha went on the Southern Company tour without me.  I hurt my foot and decided to give it a rest.  I went back to work on the “Invent It!” materials and got everything in good shape for Saturday.  There are just a few minor things to take care of now.  The exciting part is that we have about 170 girls registered.  Exxon Mobil, one of our sponsors, has a representative going on a popular Orlando morning talk show on Friday to promote the event.  We may get even more girls!  The limit is 250.

I had my Outreach Committee meeting from 3-5, followed by the committee dinner and ice cream social.  I am really excited about some of the things going on in Outreach.  You are going to get tired of listening to me over the next months.

It was a day of reunions and meeting friends.  Marsha & I had lunch with Joan Graf, our former Region i governor.  Later we caught up with Kathleen Callanan a charter member of the Wichita section and, as Suzanne reminds me, our first section representative.   She had some great stories about the beginnings of the section.  She & Marsha went to dinner together and then met up with me at the ice cream social.  We had a long talk and then Allison asked Kathleen if she would record this information if we sent her a tape.  Great idea!  Kathleen agreed but asked to record it on her computer instead.  Even better idea!

Other friends there were Karla, Suzanne D from OK, Pamela – NE, Faith – CO, Jean – Chris’ sister, and many more.  All this and ice cream too.
