Hello, from everyone in Connecticut Rainbow including our Poppins Penguins (Grand Officers) and the Cheery Chimney Sweeps (Grand Representatives). Our theme for this year is "Mary Poppins".

This year we will "Step in Time with Connecticut Rainbow" and our mascot is the penguin. Unbrellas, kites, and carousels which are important elements of the movie, will be our symbols, and we get to listen and sing along to our song, "Understand" by Shawn Mendes. Our colors are red, yellow, and blue. Our flowers are white daises and red carnations.

As we "Step in Time with Connecticut Rainbow", we will live by our quote, "When you dance, your purpose is not getting to a certain place on the floor. It's to enjoy each step along the way." Wayne Dyer.

Our charity this year is the Dizzy Feet Foundation. The Dizzy Feet Foundation is based in California and was established with the idea of making dance education more accessible to low income individuals through grants. These individuals must show a keen interest in dance and posses the ability to excel in the art form they choose.

I am supercalifragilistically excited for this upcoming year and what it will bring. Serving Connecticut Rainbow is a huge honor.

Remember, "In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun."

Jamie Owens, GWA 17-18
