With the bar set high by our last two years of Evening Under the Oaks, your Steering Team is hard at work planning a crowning third event. Last year, I gave you a sneak peek into the crazy few ladies that we are, and most of us are diligently hard at work again this year (we can't get enough of planning for the paws!). However, to really get the gold, we knew we needed a star, so please welcome our newest steering team member, Brittany Douglas!
Brittany is a Hartsville native, and lives in our beautiful community with her husband Blake and her two sweet boys (two-legged), Mason (3) and Powers (2). When's she not leading her two kids at home or leading us six 'kids' in all things Social Media Marketing, she's leading in her role as Director of Children's Ministries at St. Luke UMC. She also is the local Director of the Miss Hartsville Scholarship Organization. You would think she's given up on free time, but when I asked her about it, she mentioned that she loves to shop and dabble in graphic design projects. #relatable
Brittany's heart for the animals started early--she has ridden horses her whole life and shown at Western Pleasure horse competitions. She's somehow managed to find time to be our wonderful Communications and Ticket Sales Lead, thanks to her enthusiasm for building a new shelter for all the animals that the Humane Society rescues. She's a true Renaissance woman, and an incredible addition to our team.
With 36 days until the classiest evening in town, we're ready to begin keying you in on some of the most exciting aspects of the night...so tune in next Friday for the big reveal of our one-man band. He's one of Hartsville's favorites--and he will be playing live the entire evening! Can you guess who it is?
