Peruse my thoughts...
We had the great opportunity to visit with the Lafayette County Democrats at their annual Dinner and Pie Auction tonight. We met lots of great people and had a very nice welcome in Higginsville. I didn't get the pie I really wanted but came home with some awesome Chocolate Salted Caramel Cupcakes! I want to thank the Lafayette County Democrats for giving me a couple of minutes to speak and introduce myself. I appreciate the welcome and the comments I received after.
The main speaker for the night was Rev. Emmanuel Cleaver. I was fortunate enough several years ago to hear him speak when he was Mayor of Kansas City at a Missouri School Counselor's Association Conference at TanTarA and was very taken with him. Tonight was just as inspiring. He is a man of wisdom and faith and very much a people person. If you ever have a chance to hear him you will not be disappointed! On a side note, I would say gooseberry is his favorite pie since he bought two! We will be at the Odessa Puddle Jumpers Days next weekend. Come out and see me and tell me what you would like to see Missouri do for you!
