The annual American Red Cross holiday party for our region took place the other night. (I'm a volunteer in the media relations/public affairs area.) It was so nice to be with this group of selfless people who volunteer their time and services to help others in need.
One of the activities at the party was a cupcake decorating contest. Although my cupcake was, BY FAR, the ugliest one on the table, I won an award for "Cupcake That Shows the Most 'Holiday Spirit'"! (I was going for a Dr. Seuss towering effect.)
