Lakeway Elementary Fall Carnival

Once in a while when my schedule permits, I love to get involved with my children's school and volunteer. I thought I learned a lesson last year when a good friend of mine and I organized last year's Lakeway Elementary School Fall Carnival. Well, this year, we wanted to make more money for the school PTO so we decided to tackle this challenge again.

It surely was a beautiful sunny day (we lucked out since we've been getting alot of rain recently) in Lakeway. The carnival started at 11 and ended at 3. We had fabulous stage shows from local dance/arts studios and schools. Most importantly, we had alot of help from the middle/high school volunteers. The Varsity football players came to help set-up. take-down and clean-up. This was a day after they just won another game! The Lakeway Elementary school parents were very supportive of this event as it is our 2nd largest fundraiser of the year. The first is our no hassle fundraiser. I want to thank the following businesses who gave us generous contributions to our fall carnival:

Hill Country Pediatric Dentistry

Bob & Janis Allen
Free Chapel
Jay-Reese Contractors Inc
Kid E Shack
Lake Hills Montessori
Lakeway Orthodontics
Starwood Pools
Tae Kwon Do Kicks
The KEEP Company
Trinity Pools & Scapes

Black Sheep
Brian Besch of Besch Insurance
Café Lago
Chuck Saxon of Allstate Insurance
Dan Johnson of Empire Options
Ibank Austin
Lakeway Aquatic Therapy
Lakeway Pediatrics
Lakeway Vision
Nolan's Ark
Simply Organized
Transformations Salon
Virtual CFO
Warren Chirhart of Keller Williams Realty
Woofs Pet Salon

Lakeway Elementary continues to hold it's exemplary status. This fall, school attendance was unexpectingly high. But it does not surprise me that so many people want to come and live in Lakeway for our exemplary schools.

One project down, what's next? Hmm... I guess you'll have to stay tuned.
