Backhoed- a very good point and well taken. I guess I do take on the role of martyr at times because I have made suggestions in the past such as all of those mentioned and was told I only wanted to get something for myself. And yes the current situations definitely make it hard to look at things from a different perspective. I guess I'm starting to sound like a harda**. LOL Sorry for that.
As a real parent/person who volunteers a tremendous amount of time I would say that yes it would be great to receive something like a plant that I can look at everyday to remind me of my accomplishments and time. I love in cheerleading that most of my girls have given me pictures or a flower just because. And I do keep and cherish all of these.
Thanks for bringing me back down to earth - I realy do appreciate it!

Thank you all for your input. It's very interesting to read all the different views. In some ways, I agree with all of you! THe gifts I would like to purchase for the executive board are not coming out of the PTA budget....it's coming from me personally. However, the gifts for the outgoing board come out of my Pres. Discretionary fund. Yes, we all know why we volunteer, but it is nice to receive some sort of recognition for all the hard work. After all, if it wasn't for my board, the PTA wouldn't be as successful as it is. I'm off to ponder all the ideas...thanks again!

I was just having this discussion with my VP today! We are having a HUGE gala auction next weekend and I was asking my VP if she thought it was OK if I bought the chairman and the co-chairman some flowers and thanked them publicly at the event. They have worked on this like it was a JOB and they deserve much more than flowers but we are going to recognize them at the event and I think they deserve it...

I recieved a pen one year out of the six I have been an officer and that pen means so much to me. Sure the Thank yous and praise is nice but I can't show my parents 600 miles away that I am appreciated. It may sound shallow but noone has ever offered flowers etc to thank me or just because....okay I got flowers when I had a baby.

djbla- I would check into another charm for the bracelet but make it more yours by personalize it. Crystals are so popular, maybe even in the school's colors. What about a charm that signs thank you in sign language?

I like my pen........
