Family Night with Chick-Fil-A and the Rotary Banquets

It seems like just yesterday we were closing out May and looking into June!  And now here we are today at JULY 1st!!!!  It’s been a busy end of June and I am sure July will be the same.

Hosting Family Night at Chick-Fil-A

Earlier this week Smith & Smith, CPA had the pleasure of hosting Family Night with Chick-Fil-A at Waverly Place in Cary.  We enjoy doing this twice a year and always meet really nice families and kids.  This time we did a Summer Sponge Ball and decorate Colorful Piggy Banks.  We had a ton of families come to our table and ran out of the piggy banks within the first 30-minutes!  Thanks to all of our friends and clients who came by to see us that night.  We will host another night in the Fall 2016.

Rotary Banquets 2016-2017

This time of year also means that the 2015-2016 Rotary Year is coming to a close and the new Rotary Boards for Rotary International, Districts and Clubs will start over with new slate of officers.  Blake and I had the pleasure of attending the Rotary District 7710 Governors Banquet last week at North Ridge Country Club in Raleigh.   We also attended my own Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club Installation Banquet this week at NC State University Club.  Both events were well attended and really nice.  It’s so fun to celebrate all that has been accomplished in a Rotary year!  I am excited to see Susan Pruskin come in as our Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club new President!  She was a new member for me to Rotary several years ago and she is going to have a fantastic year!!!  Congrats Susan!   Thank you to My Girlfriend’s Closet in downtown Cary and downtown Apex for helping me with dresses for both events.  I wore a shiny silver dress to the North Hills banquet and last night a dark blue tulle and lace dress with the sleeve cut out to the NC State University Club.  MGC has a HUGE summer sale going on right now!  Tell them you read Beccasblog.com to get a special discount!

End of School Year

On a personal note, our boys have finished the school year and are now moving into 1st Grade and 4th Grade.  So crazy!  We were able to attend their school programs this week and are so proud of their accomplishments!  Trent received the MATH Award for his class again this year!  So proud!  Mark received his promotion certificate to 1st grade.  Both boys had excellent report cards!  We are so proud!  In the picture with Mark I am working a Yellow Silk top from J.Crew that I found at My Girlfriend’s Closet and in the picture with Trent I am wearing a lightweight summer sweater from Ann Taylor Loft, also from My Girlfriend’s Closet.

Cary Magazine Movers & Shakers 2016

Blake & Becca at Cary Magazine Movers & Shakers Class of 2016

Last night, Cary Magazine hosted their 2nd Annual Movers & Shakers party for the Class of 2016.  I am so honored to have been included among the winners this year!  The winners were nominated by peers and selected based on their community service, business involvement and leadership roles.   The June/July 2016 Issue of Cary Magazine featured an article about the Movers & Shakers this year and listed out their achievements and success.  I really enjoyed reading the article and am proud to say I know many of these people as close friends, fellow Rotarians, and business partners.   The party last night was held at the new Bond Brothers Brewery in downtown Cary and featured appetizers by Catering by Design and really delicious pie from Slice.  Thanks to 5Star Awards for the beautiful glass engraved awards.

Here are some pictures from the Movers & Shakers Class of 2016 event last night to share.  Thanks to Lois Cozart of My Girlfriend’s Closet for selecting the chartreuse yellow sundress for me to wear to the party!  They has also paired up the white dress & accessories for the magazine photo (see below) that was shot in late April at the Page Walker Center in downtown Cary.
