It was another wonderful Mom Squad Christmas Luncheon! This year we moved to La Malfa Centre in Mentor. As you will see, the (unplanned) color of the day was red. I guess that means the Holy Spirit was present in a big way!:) Sincere thanks to ALL who attended, including our title sponsor, Klaben Auto and the vendors and Fish staff who made the day possible. Here are a few snapshots from the lovely day...

Our Mom Squad member, Robin Blair offered the opening prayer:
Congratulations to the Brightpeak Financial "Willing Hands" award winner: Carole Coiro. Christine Boyle, our "Mom of the Year" (and new Mom Squad member) handed her the check!
Amy Lively was our first speaker. She shared her own story including how "The Neighborhood Cafe" was born!
We were treated to a wonderful keynote address by Courtney Joseph from Women Living Well. Fun fact: she is just as radiant, wise and bubbly as she appears on her blog. :)
Aaron Shust received a standing ovation for his performance. He was amazing. He also shared news that he's preparing to travel to Prague in 2014 to make his first Christmas album. Who knows, maybe he'll be back for the Christmas Luncheon next year?
