Thank You For Supporting Scholarship Fund Fish Fry

I want to start by giving God thanks.. Thank you to everyone who came out to support Children With A Vision & Our Sisters-Our Friends Scholarship Fund Fry Fish. A lot of trials came up and tried to hinder this event, but God get all the glory in end. I just give the Lord all the praises for strengthening me and Mrs. Sheilah Youngblood for glorious occasion for our male youth education. Thank you to everyone bought a ticket, came by, and donated online for these young men. You know standing up and serving the food yesterday, I looked over to see the young men standing and hold signs with their graduation capon gown on bought tears to my eyes. I said Lord they’re not on side of the road selling drugs, they pushing a sign for their education. God to be the glory. People should have filled the lot and stopped, but I thank everyone who came. We did well, and the young men were proud. “A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE”. Thank you again for support the Scholarship Fund Fish Fry.

Children With A Vision "1st Annual Valentine's Grandmothers Day Gala"

These are the Honoree’s that will be honored along with 125 grandmothers out of the community which took place @ Ragan Park Community Center. They truly deserve to be honored. They are a fine example of what “PASSING THE TORCH” should simplify. They’ve paid their dues in this community to so many that has come behind them. So we as Children With A Vision & Our Sisters-Our Friends will “Give Them Their Flowers While Their Living”. If you were not there, you missed a treat. Jus t to see the grandmothers coming in looking like the roses they are. The young men where excellent, the grandmothers where flattered to be treated like royalty. Thanks to the Lord first, then Visionaries me (Tonya Lewis) with Children With A Vision & Mrs. Shellah Youngblood (Our Sisters-Our Friends), Sponsors, Organizations, Volunteers who made this a night to remember. Special thank you to all the young men who chaperoned and waited on the grandmothers.
