Recognizing the DRAGONS!

On Monday, November 4th, the Fayette County Dragons attended the Annual Awards Banquet. An exciting presentation of awards took place after a volunteer-provided dinner. The Miami Trace FFA students made sure all the guests were comfortable with drinks and food throughout the evening.

The athletes were recognized for each of the sporting teams they participated in with a certificate and trophy. Volunteers were each thanked with certificates and Individual Awards were provided for “above and beyond,” contributions during the past year.

Special “Thanks,” were given to D. B Yummers, Walmart DC, The Linen CLoset, Frisch’s, Nickel’s bakery, Streetside 62, Nate Warder Livestock and Butch Williamson for be donors from the community.

A Fayette County Commissioner as well as the Fayette County Board of DD Board Members attended.

Representatives from very supportive community groups, THE GUNS-N-HOSES (local PD and Firefighters), WCHO and THE TIMES HERALD also attended.

Ms. Sylvia Call, FCBDD Staff Member, was the MC throughout the night and Ms. Betty Hodges and Mr. Tim Stewart, also both FCBDD employees chaired the event.

Without so much support, the athletes and their families would have never had an opportunity to be recognized for their sports ability in such a classy manner. Thank you to athletes, sponsors, coaches, families and the community for an amazing 2019 year!

Celebrating Success

Last week, I noticed that Michael (one of my PLAY kiddos who I started working with back in EI) was watching other kids going down the slide.  Michael typically does not engage at all on the playground and usually just wanders around the perimeter.  I was able to coax him into using the steps to access the play equipment, and he was overjoyed!  He went down both slides, climbed through the tunnel, and deliberately made his way back to the bottom of the stairs to begin the game again.  He was smiling and laughing and completely engaged.  His mom was delighted that he was able to navigate the equipment and stayed engaged throughout multiple exchanges.  He has been going up and down the steps and using the playground equipment on his own since then!
