So the evening began with a trivia game that required the community to investigate into the lives of the new program directors, trying to discover which of the volunteers paired up with the list of trivia facts given. Then after Amira introduced Katie and the new program directors, a handful of girls from the community performed both folklore and reggaetown dances. Along with the help of program directors Steph and Carly, the girls were all dressed up for the occasion, wearing traditional Nicaraguan skirts and tops with makeup and hair to along with it; they all looked beautiful and danced wonderfully. It was then time for each of the program directors of 2010-2011 to say their own special goodbye, which lead into the final and probably most anticipated event, the photo slideshow. The slideshow was a brief five minute video of pictures that captured just a handful of the many memories and experiences that took place this past year. The rest of the night was then spent eating cake and hanging out with the community members. There were tears and there was laughter and of course photos being snapped in every which direction, making the entire evening absolutely awesome but definitely bittersweet as well.
