Trophies gathering dust? Donate them back to students

by Kim Riggs

Joe Masini, one of the owners of Bodine’s, called and asked if I knew of a program that accepted old trophies. His son, Tony, is now in college and has a few he would like to donate back to other children.

I called the local trophy store, AwardZone, and asked them if they would be interested.

Jamie and Jenni Eyerly loved the idea.

“We really appreciate the opportunity to give something back to the community that supports us as a business. We try to make awards affordable for everyone, and the donation program will be a great way to make sure that even those who can’t afford it can still be recognized,” Jenni said.

Brewery Arts Center is featuring Christine Kane in the Performance Hall in a live concert Friday. She will host a workshop called “Great Big Dreams” on Saturday. She said, “So many women I meet on the road and in workshops, myself included, have so much passion and so many dreams, and too often get stuck in their own doubts and insecurities.” This workshop is a combination of lecture, open discussion, written exercises and take-home tools.
