My grandmother, Memory Lee Aldridge Lester, was an amazing storyteller and I like to think of myself as an acorn that didn't fall far from her tree. My "energetic" style was captured by the event photographer last year and made it onto the hold the date card for this year's event. That's me there in the lower left corner.
