WRAR Realtor ReCharge 2010 - Who Says We're Not Having Fun?

Yesterday, Thursday February 10th was the occasion of the 2010 REALTOR® ReCHARGE with Featured Speaker & Humorist Kathleen Passanisi at the Holiday Inn Resort on Wrightsville Beach. I've got a bunch of photos of people there, but someone took this one of me and I can't resist leading with it, in part because I'm not shy, but also because it captures the message, spirit and purpose of the event.

So yeah, that's me, Bruce Brown.

There were a whole passle of generous sponsors (lots of drawing prizes) on hand with exhibits and booths to visit before and after the speaker.

Below are Wells Fargo Mortgage's Lisa Mesler, Alan Henderson, and JT Terry.
