You may or may not be aware of it, but we are in that wonderful time of the year affectionately known as “Awards Show Season.” That time of year where celebrities celebrate how “great” they are and all of us regular people “OOOOHHHH!” and “AHHHHH!” (and sometime “EWEEEEE!!”) over who is wearing what and going to the show with who.
This year there will be at least one new award show passing out coveted and prestigious awards. The show will take place on February 10, 2018 and will begin at 6:00 PM.
The new awards to be passed out are known as “Easties”...which makes perfect sense since they will be handed out at our annual Valentines Banquet!
That’s right, guys...shine your shoes and send your best suit/tuxedo to the cleaners. Girls, get that formal gown you never thought (or hoped) you’d wear ever again ready to go. We’ve got a party to dress up for!!
We will have a red carpet for pictures starting at 6:00. Dinner will be catered by an as yet to be determined professional culinary institution. And, “Yes, Virginia,” there really are “Eastie” awards and they really will be awarded at the Banquet. (By the way, if you have any ideas for categories for awards, I’d love to hear them...serious or otherwise...I do already have a few, but could use a few more.)
If you are new to Eastgate and have not attended one of our Valentines Banquets (or if you have been here for a long time and just haven’t attended for whatever reason), I really want to encourage you to attend this year.
Why are we doing this? Why, to have fun of course; to share a time of fellowship; to laugh and have a fantastic time!
For the record, you do not have to wear “formal” attire to attend (though if you want to “dress to the nines” feel free). The most important thing is that you come and that we enjoy ourselves, and that God is glorified!
