HEY MISSOURI!
(hearing Hey Mike's all across the state...) Welcome back! I want to take a little time and thank some people who made the 2008 Youth Tour an amazing trip. First, the chaperones that helped to keep everyone safe. They walked their leggs off, stayed up late, woke up early, ate fast food, helped kids, numbered off, and always kept a smile on. The trip could not be done without you. Thanks for the sacrifice of time away from family, to help with the Youth Tour family. A couple special thank yous....Jason - thanks for making this blog happen. You spent extra time and extra late nights to upload photos and find people to type stuff on here - you are THE MAN! Christian, thanks for all the "behind the scenes" planning and helping me - you are THE WOMAN!

Next - thanks to 84 of the coolest, brightest, smartest, funest, most talented , respectful youth I have ever met! You all are what makes the the trip come alive. You guys were a wonderful group to work with, and I will miss seeing you and hearing you number off. Please keep in touch.

Last - thanks to the Electric Cooperatives of Missouri! They make this trip a reality. They promote it, visit schools, and provide the financial means. Please know that this trip makes a difference in the lives of the youth in your community.

Again, thanks to everyone for an AMAZING trip to Washington, D.C.!

Mike

This wasn't just the trip of a lifetime for young adults, but for this chaperone also. Not only did I see Washington, D.C. and all its beauty and history, I met some of the greatest young adults ever. They were polite and did whatever was asked of them. It was a fantastic experience for me and one I will always treasure!

Hey Mike! Just wanted to thank you for making Youth Tour such an unbelievably fun trip for everyone lucky enough to get to go. Being a chaperone had to be as much fun as being a delegate, and it's because of all your organizational skills, humor and patience. Well, and because D.C. is so cool. I could not, would not, have chosen a better group to go with. You're all the best.
