Sam, I plan on coming this year.

We'd love to have you bring your cameras and snacks!

Hey Sam! I am definitely planning on coming again this year, along with hopefully a few other students from VT. Last year, two of us brought our cameras and took some shots, so if that would be helpful again, we would be more than willing to bring them.

Also, if there is a need for snacks and such while people are waiting for their picture, we can definitely bring some to set out. 

Thanks for organizing this again! I'm really excited.

Update: I visited the Rescue Mission on Friday and the printers are there and completely functional, so printing will be onsite again this year! I wasn't sure whether they had been used since last year, so I was very concerned. We will now be working on trying to find donors for ink and paper.

The event will be at the Rescue Mission in the same room as previously from 9am until 3 or 4pm depending on demand. I need to start getting a count of people that believe they will be able to make it. So, if you plan on coming, please let me know.

Thanks! I think this year will be even better!

Hello everyone!
I apologize for the delay in solidifying the event this year. It has been a crazy one. At this point we now have confirmation from the Rescue Mission in Roanoke that they definitely want to host the event again this year. Also, Art Sellers and I met with the cosmetology program director yesterday at Miller-Motte and they are excited about being a part of the event again this year.

I will be going to the Rescue Mission on Friday to test out the two printers that were donated to the event last year.

So, if you want to be involved again this year, we would love to have you! Plan on December 8, 2012 to be a day we give back. More details will be coming as I get them. Thanks!

Yes Sam, I have a couple of Miller-Mott photos from the maek-up room.  Send me an email to and I will forward them via email.  Thanks for arranging for this great group of young ladies to make our participants look GOOD!

Definitely ask Brenda and Art.

Hey everyone! I was asked by Marsha from Miller-Motte if we had any photos of the students there working on hair and makeup. I know that some people were running around taking photos of the event, and despite my resolve to document the event better this year, I completely forgot to. Does anyone have images that I could send to them? They were really helpful to us this year, and I think this will help them in return. It also might help us get more assistance next year. 

I hope everyone has a good holiday! It was great meeting and working with everyone this year!
