The Operation Inquiry Indoor Picnic

The program for the Operation Inquiry Indoor Picnic.

The Operation Inquiry Indoor Picnic was held on Thursday, April 3rd.  The event was conceived to celebrate the Operation Inquiry Projects/Products.  Each of my students (who presented) received two tickets to the event.

Mr. Chalmers McDougald (City Coucilman of Fayetteville - Representing District 4) kicked off the evening with a rousing charge to the students.  His speech was well received by the attendees.  I was so grateful that we were able to secure him!

After the city councilman's address, we listened to Mariah Carey's inspirational ballad, 100%.  I wanted the students to hear this song because of the powerful lyrics.  It is important that each of us give 100% in all endeavors.

Jason's Deli catered our event, and 100% of the catering costs were free to my school. The delicious restaurant donated 60 meals, and I had corporate sponsors for the other 170 meals needed!
