Woo Whoo - We Did It!   Congratulations everyone for pulling together as a team to fulfill our commitment for the Dome Concession Stand Season!  With the completion of Monster Jam we've earned a break (everyone do your happy dance).   THANK YOU doesn't begin to cover what we want to say to Becky Clifford and Wendy Solberg.  They both clocked in hours of planning, coordinating, communicating, rearranging and scheduling.  On top of that they sacrificed hours upon hours of hard time on their feet at the concession stand pushing out those hot dogs, nachos, drinks & pizza!  We appreciate so much the responsibility they have taken on with regard to supporting the entire LHSMBB.  We also want to recognize their kids who also spent many nights and weekends working the Dome as well because of the commitment their parents made.  That's some pretty great kids, don't ya think?!   Now, of course, it does take Teamwork to make the Dreamwork and we are so grateful to each person who has worked at the Dome this season.  It really doesn't matter if you've been a runner, griller, manager or cashier. Every person who took on a job was valuable to our LHSMBB organization.  So let's be sure to celebrate and say some thank you's when we see each other at our upcoming Booster Meeting!  Speaking of which....
