Kathy Porter came up with the Merit Badge idea and spent untold hours creating them.  She also helped me out with the Tuesday night orientation and Meet the Teachers.

Marie Haws again did a wonderful job on the Art Auction.  And she once again made wonderful theme related lanyards for the quilt fest committee.

Brenda Bell is the most amazingly well organized Secretary ever.

Crystal North created a wonderful Vendor’s Mall and really looked out for the vendors.  The Jamboree was a huge success.  Not to mention all of the problems encountered with the website this year. She was helping us out from Paris when the website went down early on.
