Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain loving one another. ~Erma Bombeck
We asked Kelly Shubert, mom to Emma, and host of Rockin' for Rett - Oley, PA about the volunteers who helped make her most recent Rockin' for Rett a success.
"It takes a village to raise a child...and I am part of the most awesome village of all. This event would not have happened without their support. Each of them has gone out of their way," she said.
"A special thanks does go out to the amazing chefs of the event. The Fire & Spice competition BBQ team of Eric, Patrise and Sammi. Time and again, they simply said YES! They took over a large portion of the event without hesitation even amongst a busy volleyball season with Sammi! They ran back and forth all day between the event and Sammi's volleyball tournament, all while making sure all the food was hot and ready to eat, and all the food related details were taken care of.
They give their time, and share their talents. They do this all from the heart, with no expectation of anything in return."
Thank you Fire & Spice!
