April is Here!

Last week, I met Lynne Tolley (right in photo), great-grandniece of Jack Daniel at the Southern Dinner and Whiskey Tasting hosted by the Peabody Hotel to promote the 75th anniversary of the Peabody Ducks in March. Watch for upcoming “Wine & Dine” featuring her and her recipes from “Cooking with Jack.”

“It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” ~Mark Twain

Our April issue features the Outstanding Young Women of Memphis and is one of the most popular issues we do all year. We are very proud of the young women that are featured. All the girls profiled this month have been selected for this award from many nominations received from schools, organizations and businesses. We no longer have an awards luncheon for the Outstanding Young Women. Try to get 30 teenagers, their families and teachers together for one April or May afternoon and it’s practically impossible. Since most are seniors, that adds even more to their busy schedules. There never seemed to be a good day or time to have an event. Believe me, we tried. This year the nominators will receive a certificate to present to the girls however they wish.
While looking for quotes, I found this that fits perfectly for this April issue:

“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.” ~William Shakespeare

Here is an example of the Outstanding Young Women award certificates they will be receiving soon from the nominators.

Have a great April and a wonderful spring!

Great idea for the certificate to be presented to the girls by the nominators!

Yes, I want it! Whatever IT is!
