Flower Pens

 On November 24, two Youth Matter Inc. ambassadors and two Sapphire cheerleaders visited Sentara Nursing Home in Portsmouth, Va. The YMI volunteers and the residents created beautiful flower pens. The room was full of smiling faces as everyone added their own personal touch on their flower pens.

Suffolk Christmas Parade

-          On Saturday December 8th, the Sapphire cheerleaders took to the streets of Suffolk, VA, for Suffolk’s annual holiday parade. This year’s theme was “Holiday in Toyland”. There were many floats decorated with persons dressed as gifts, Mr. CIAA himself were located behind the cheerleaders, and even some of the local bands were dressed in costume as toys. Our Sapphires made us proud as usual, and stole the crowd. The streets were packed and the people embraced them. It wasn’t as cold as we suspected, but the girls were dressed in full uniform and warm up suits; we even accessorized them with glow bracelets and holiday headbands.
