Rachel has found a home within the Drill Team these least last few years. It has been a beautiful story of Moments of Joy and Belonging for her. This past summer, she aged out of the school system and her ability to participate as a member of the Drill Teams she loves so much.
As many of you know, Rachel had a very difficult summer and fall, due to life threatening medical issues. In the midst of this, she was grieving the loss of her beloved Planoettes. At some point she asked me to start a new Drill Team...HER Drill Team...one she would never get kicked out of.
I'm not going to lie, I would have promised her anything right then, but I also was so traumatized that I couldn't even imagine creating anything ever again.
But, of course, I said, "Yes, we will start something. I can't do a Drill Team, but I can probably do a Pom Squad. I can't do it now, but I will do it someday."
She was happy, even in her misery, when she talked about The Pinkettes.
And finally, Someday is Now. This is going to be FUN!
Please join The Pinkettes email list to get information about being a part of the team, either as
a member of the team, as an Officer, or in a supporting role.
