As nearly 1,000 people “took” Lake Waccamaw this weekend, I cheered every one of them on from 5,000 miles away.
I helped organize Take the Lake for six years, and when I left this summer for Peace Corps service in Moldova, I wasn’t sure how I would feel with it all going on without me. Well, turns out that I missed it very much, but I was excited and even giddy all weekend as I watched it unfold on social media and on Whiteville.com.
All of the organizers, volunteers, partners and participants did an incredible job and should be very proud!
The committee is already preparing their “Thank You” notes, so, I am writing this to thank one person
