For the third year, I (Tony the Balloon Guy) will be at the Rotary Club’s annual Family Night in New Port Richey in February. What a great group of people. And not just because they keep hiring me (and thus, putting food in the mouths of my family and animals!). They’re just fun to be with. And they do good things.
Last year, in addition to the family night, they hired me to do a birthday party. Well, a half-birthday party. It was a party for a young guy, eight years old, if I remember right, who was battling brain cancer, and maybe wasn’t looking at his next actual birthday.
And what a party. It was in the same pavilion where the big Family Nights are held, and there were bounce houses, a magician doing a show, all kinds of food…
The birthday boy was in good spirits, surrounded by family and lots of other kids. I remember he wanted me to make him a Spider-Man dog. Not a dog. Not Spider-Man. But a Spider-Man dog. To date, that’s still a one-of-a-kind sculpture for me. And I made him a big candle-topped birthday cake out of balloons as well.
Maybe if you’re looking to meet new people and do some good things for the community, you’d benefit from looking into the Rotary Club.
Have a fun day!
