Sorry about your loss. It's never easy. Nice pictures of the opening (the sign as well as the LED display). I'm glad you enjoyed the day!!

It was such an awesome experience and I loved every second! I met quite a few of the disers and I now know why Uncle Peter loves this so much!

You all are just amazing

I did love the crayons and the bubbles for the kids.. It took the edge off for the younger ones when the older ones were in the bounce house.

I should have had a name badge that said "Victorias mom"

Tara you did a wonderful job!! Your help was absolutely amazing! I also hope the person who won the Tastefully Simple raffle really enjoys it

A BIG congratulations to Tara and all her helpers who helped organize and run the event.

Thank you to all that attended and donated!!!

Who's the next group/city to step up and organize an event like this?
See John ... Fitchburg and Leominster (Lemonster=) "aren't" that bad ;-p

Seriously ... Thank you to the the Podcast Team for your support.

One Team Same Dream!!

A special thanks to Tara and her Diva's for pulling this together. Obviously a lot of work went into organizing the event and it all came off very nicely.

Just blown away at the fact that the event raised over $10,000 for Give Kids the World.
Our first DIS event and as we got out of the car the first thing that happened was our warm welcome from Jeff & Val! Thanks for making us feel included right from the start! What a wonderful event! Tara and her Diva's - incredible! You should be so proud of yourselves! Not only for the fabulous outcome for GKTW but giving so many of us first timers at a DIS event such a great experience. Now we can't wait for 3.0!! And actually getting to meet Pete, Kathy & Walter after years of listening to the podast - priceless!
Thanks everyone!

After five years of lurking around, and three years of listening to the Podcast, we finally attended our first meet. I am completely amazed at the dedication and work that went into the event, and could not be more proud to have been able to support it.

I felt like I was on cloud nine all day yesterday. I woke up this morning wishing I could do it again today. Thank you so much to everyone who made us feel welcome on our first event.

A special thanks to all of those who made yesterday a reality.

-Dave
