Congratulations to My Daughter Tara!!!

Good Morning Everyone!

I am getting ready to come back to 
BLOG LAND
on a regular basis starting next week.

I have been playing "catch up" after
getting nothing done for a few weeks. UGH!

Today I just wanted to give a little
CONGRATULATIONS
to my daughter, Tara.
She is the new executive director of
ON BROADWAY.
She is on the right.

On Broadway is revitalizing
 the West side of Green Bay.
She will do a wonderful job!

Gokey was project manager before being named interim director in October when Naumann announced his resignation. She joined Broadway in 2012 as marketing and communications director and is the seventh executive director of the near west side economic development and historic preservation organization.
Also announced Tuesday, Ahnna Luckeroth joined On Broadway as project manager. She joined the organization in April as an intern. She is a graduate of University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
On Broadway was founded in 1995 to revitalize the Broadway area from Mather to Mason streets and from the Fox River west to Ashland Avenue. It is a member of the Main Street program.

Congratulations, Tara!
I am SO proud of you!
As you can see-the girls are proud of her, too.
Taken downtown by Mom.

I am feeling much better and have been 
working like crazy to catch up.
I hope to be back blogging regularly next week.
I apologize for not visiting you..
but I will!
I might even have an ELF story
or two to share with you!
He is SOOOO naughty.
WHO could he be watching take a shower?
Let's just say-it isn't Barbie!
Have a GREAT weekend!

    So glad you're feeling better, Diana. Enjoy the weekend.
