A Very Unexpected Reward // DAR Community Service

In these past few weeks I went to a DAR: Daughters of the American Revolution meeting/ luncheon. I went, for what I thought was, to support my grandmother who is the Regent of the Puc Puggy Chapter NSDAR. I, however, was recognized for receiving FIRST Place for Excellence in Community Service by the Community Service Awards Committee. I am so grateful to have even been considered for this award. My Mema emailed me a letter to let me see what the prerequisites consisted of to even be considered for this award and all I could think to myself was… I dont think i’ve done near enough yet to recieve this! Here’s what she sent me:

“The purpose of the Community Service Award is to recognize worthy local people from a variety of walks of life for outstanding achievements in educational, humanitarian, patriotic, historical or citizenship endeavors.  The recipient is expected to have contributed to his or her community in an outstanding voluntary heroic,  civic or benevolent manner, or participated in or organized community activities.  This award is not to be presented to members of NSDAR for their DAR-related activities. The recipient must not have received any salary or remuneration for this service.  The award may not be awarded to a recipient more than one time and may not be initiated or approved posthumously.  Awards that have been approved may be presented posthumously. There will be a limit of two (2) awards per chapter per NSDAR year.  This achievement should have taken place in the past five (5) years.”

HERE’S ME AND MY MEMA

And here’s a group shot!!!

I had no idea that my info was even being submitted… and to win 1st place? WOW!!! I just wanted to take the time to thank all of you who took the time to write letters of recommendations and would like to personally thank each and every member of the Puc Puggy Chapter for so graciously recommending me for this award! I am very humbled to say this award was given for my efforts to help mentor young women with my 4G Event through the Just For Grins Foundation. So excited, this years event is THIS WEEKEND!!!

As I understand it, I will now be placed in the running to receive a Presidential Award and can not even begin to tell you how honored I am! Thank you all again for all the love and support you continue to show me on this journey… cant wait to see what God has in store next!!!

XOXO, Mandi
