On Tuesday, March 4 I visited IHOP for National Pancake Day. On this day, guests could eat a short stack of pancakes for free. In addition, they were asked to donate to Children’s Miracle Network (CMN). CMN is the national platform for the Miss America Organization, and strives to complete two goals. 1) Distribute funds to children who are unable to pay for medical bills and 2) keep the funds local.
Wednesday morning, I took a trip to Spokane Community College to read to a few pre-school classes in the Head Start/ Early Head Start program. Throughout the week, the pre-school asked public figures to come in and read, as part of the Read Across America program. I read my favorite children’s book “Push Here.” It is very interactive and the kids were so fun and responsive.
I was there in full support of all the lovely Miss Spokane Organization members who were nominated for a Chase Youth Commission Award. Several Miss Spokane princesses walked away with community service awards. Our teen director, Heather Moore, was nominated for the Jim Chase “Asset Builder” Award. We are so very proud of her!
Until next week,
