H2H Weekly Challenge| Invitation Only

I am so excited you are back to check out this weeks challenge! This week we are setting the challenge to create and invitation or to scrapbook an invitation. I am choosing to scrapbook an invitation!

What a surprise when I received a letter in the mail, inviting me to the Sandusky County Chamber of Commerce's Annual Awards banquet! I was nominated for Citizen of the Year in Sandusky County. WHAT!?! ME? Did they get the right Danielle?
I have no idea who nominated me, nor what I am doing that lead me to be qualified for this award. I suspect it is the community service projects my cub scouts, their parents and myself tackle all year long. But that is the point, so you keep doing the good deeds unknowingly.

The evening was fun, I was able to catch up with my long time Friend Leah! We had a wonderful dinner with lots of chatter and laughing. It was not until the end when the Citizen of the Year was announced. I was sitting on the edge of my seat. Secretly I wanted to win, I was nervous, because all the recipients were giving thank you speeches. I was sort of sweating bullets on what to say. I mean I was only able to guess what I had done to deserve a nomination, let alone a win. Finally at last the  winner began describing the 2019 winner. I immediately knew I was the runner up, as they described the 2019 winner as one who has dedicated 38 years to community service, I have only been alive for 37! Clearly not me. Hehe! I didn’t realize just how many talented and dedicated souls there are in my community, they go far beyond the call of duty! It was such an honor to be nominated. I will continue to serve my community, day after day, and year after year even if it means, I will never be nominated again. I mean isn’t that what you are supposed to do anyway?
Their theme was 'CLUED IN', and everything was from the table settings to the menu featured a token or verbiage from the family favorite board game.
