The latest:  We had a “tornado” by the name of Cherise Wintz come through our lives this last month- a smallish human with a heart of cyclonic proportions, who took it upon herself to pull together an entire holiday parade!  – Nevermind that there has not been a parade in our town for fourteen years – Nevermind that the idea didn’t even come up until sometime in late summer –  She decided, and that was that!  So, last Saturday, she pulled it off in grand style!  If you don’t believe it, you can view the photos on our Pearls International Facebook Page.

The motive – Cherise was raising funds for Operation Changing Lives, a group of doctors who perform facial surgeries for cleft palates here and overseas, helping those who can’t help themselves.  What an inspiration Cherise is to all of us, and she pulled it off.  We were all honored to be a part of this great undertaking and moved that one human got all of us to take our minds off the daily grind for a moment and think about someone else.  Thanks, Cherise!
