A Model in Our Midst

Design 1 Salon Spa Fashion EventThe model that I would like to honor is Jared Mills!  On December 15, he served as a runway model for Design 1’s fashion show event which raised money for the Helen Devos Children’s Hospital.   Recovering patients from the hospital served as models for this night of glitter and glam.  You can view some of the photos of the models at this location: Grand Rapids Press.   Wood TV 8 West Broadcast highlighted the mission of the fashion show, giving special mention to the young models.
The morning after modeling at the B.O.B., Jared went to Helen Devos Children’s Hospital for eye reconstruction surgery.  Many of you are aware that last year a tumor developed behind Jared’s eye–and he endured surgeries, treatments and many many MANY doctor’s visits.  Jared is one of our Georgetown Hero’s and a handsome model, too!  He is now home recovering and hopefully enjoying his well deserved vacation!

Just Write: A Celebration in May

We are in our second year of developing our writing skills–both process and craft.  In May, we will be holding our second annual, We have something to say…JUST WRITE!  Celebration.  For this event, each writer (and this includes staff members) selects a piece of writing to publish professionally.  In addition, we post writing around the building and on our blogs.  There are many other events that take place, and details will be shared as the date draws nearer.  In the meantime, I would like to invite you to visit the stories that were published last May on the site.  Any of these titles can be purchased or downloaded for free. To view our books at the location, simply type Georgetown Elementary into the search area.
