This week's pictures come from this year's Buffalo Jills Congratulatory Party. This was an event, started a few years ago, meant to introduce the new Jills to the public, and allow the public to not only meet the new squad members, but see the returning vets as well. It usually takes place at the end of April or beginning of May so don't be afraid to set aside a few Saturday nights for next spring. But before we think about next year, let's take a look at a few pics from this year's event.
The 1st pic features rookies Kristin M and Brandi. All I can say about Kristin so far is that she's kind of a quiet and reserved girl, at least at first. Brandi should be no stranger to anyone who's been to Jills events, or at least looking at pictures from them, the last few years. She's had some friends on the squad, like Omarlla, and even gave it a shot trying out a few years back. Thankfully, she never gave up and made the squad this year.
The 2nd pic features Liz, Kelly, Alison, Danielle, and Sarah. Kelly and Danielle need no introduction as they're the captains of the Jills Ambassador Squad. Kelly's been with the squad since 2002 and Danielle is in her first season as Kelly's co-captain and her 3rd year with the Jills. Rookie Liz is a psych major and Alison is one of her closest friends. Rookie Sarah is one of our two Canadians on the squad and the two Toronto games are basically going to be in her backyard.
Of course, you won't have to wait until football season to meet these, and other, rookies. July 12th and 13th is the Annual Taste of Buffalo festival in Niagara Square in downtown Buffalo and you'll find mostly rookies at the 97Rock, Bills, and 103.3 The Edge booths at the event both days. And July 21st at Fox Valley Country Club is a time you can meet not only the entire group of rookies, but all the vets as well at the 6th Annual Buffalo Jills Golf Tournament. So if you're a golfer, or just trying to be, that's the date to take a vacation day.
