October 2018 President’s Message
by Hayley Lane, YBP President
I can’t believe it’s already fall! YBP still has a lot of fun events to wrap up the year.
We attended a Salsa Tasting on September 21 at Lighthouse and helped judge the salsa made by the kids with ingredients from their garden. This is the second year we’ve judged this fun event.
Our last and final Midday Meetup is coming up on Tuesday, October 23. This is one you don’t want to miss! We will get the opportunity to network with Veteran HBAL Board members. Lunch is free for YBP members!
Our final Lighthouse project is Monday, October 29. We will be helping set-up their haunted house. Come and help us put together the walls, hang out with the kids or donate some candy to this event.
Please watch your email for more information about our YBP tailgate on Saturday, November 17! Go Big Red! We are also planning our Holiday party so stay tuned for more information for both of these events.
As always, if you have any ideas for networking events or any feedback for us, please shoot me an email at Hayley@rezacconstruction.com!
YBP & The Lighthouse
In 2017, the YBP Council formed an amazing partnership with The Lighthouse which has been very fulfilling as we work to provide a positive influence in the kids’ lives. In June 2017, we held our inaugural Light the Way 5K which raised $800 for The Lighthouse. Other activities have included an ice cream social, workdays to powerwash and stain their pergolas, celebrity judging of their annual salsa tasting competition and a game night.
Food Bank of Lincoln BackPack Program
In 2016, the YBP Council began collecting free-will donations at their events to be given to the Food Bank of Lincoln’s BackPack Program. To date, the group has given over $695 to this great cause.
