PA3 Wins Awards at Annual Meeting
PA3 Makes a Splash at SONJ Summer Games
July 8, 2011: Thanks again to Sabrina King ’01 for her stellar work organizing this year’s PA3 volunteer day at the Special Olympics New Jersey Summer Games on June 12. Her excellent summary is below, as are a couple of photos. The group picture looks like it was taken from the bottom of the swimming pool – but at least you can make out those awesome PA3 hats. The in-focus picture shows Amy Lai ’06 at the awards ceremony.--
The SONJ group consisted of Elizabeth Jacobson k10, Rachael Edelson, Amy Lai ’06, Elizabeth Henry ’88, her husband Keith Henry and daughter Lauryn Henry, Haiyan Bian, Doug Henn *83, Katherine Tenaglia ’07, and Sabrina King ’01.
Most of us were grouped with the aquatics awards, so after the athletes competed, they came up to receive their medals. Between lining the athletes up, organizing the medals, and escorting the athletes to the podium, we were kept busy. It was rewarding to see all the athletes come through, excited to be on stage with flowers in hand and medals around their necks! Other PA3 volunteers got pulled from the group to do security and aquatics timing. Thanks to everyone who came out for the fun day, and we hope more can join next year!
