Amy Roloff updated her official website. Kind of.
There is a new tab on her website titled "Giving Back" with information about her Golf Tournament coming up in September.
"Not only will there be a golf tournement at one of the nicest courses in the US, but an amazing dinner, and auction will also take place over the two days. If that wasn’t enough you can’t miss the special celebrity appearances by Time Bandit from Discovery Channel™s The Deadliest Catch, AC Green,Mark Radford (NBA), Antonio Harvey (NBA / Commentator), & Bobby Gross (NBA / Blazers 77 Championship Team), and many more¦
Buy your tickets HERE, space is limited so don’t delay."
Visit the link below for more information about her event.
Other changes to her website:
Amy has a few new speaking engagements lined up. She was back in Michigan this week at a "Michigan Works" event in Houghton, MI on August 24th.
Her next scheduled date is in Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada on October 1st. I believe this is the first time Amy's speaking in Canada. On the show Amy and Molly visited Vancouver for a Birthday getaway. Amy also has another speaking event in Michigan -- Jackson, MI, a Disability Connections Confernce on October 8th. Amy will be at the University of Alabama on October 23rd for a speech about 'having a disability and succeeding in the workforce' for Human Resource Management seminar.
Other changes, it appears they re-titled the heading of the Amy's blog segment from "Blog" to "Catch Up With Amy" (perhaps she didn't want to use 'Keeping up with Amy'? ;-) Although the she still only has two entries, the last one being January 2009.
None of the family member profiles or pictures have changed.
However, there is a notable change in Amy's links section. She has removed the rather divisive and controversial 'Focus On The Family' link that she originally promoted since her website's creation last September. Focus On The Family is arguably most notorious for their anti-gay stances and efforts politically. I made my personal feelings known about Amy's association with Focus on the Family known the first time around and we posted a letter a woman wrote Amy regarding that issue. Amy of course is welcome to carry whatever political and religious beliefs and affiliations she wishes, but her link to Focus On The Family did seem somewhat odd given that Amy is a diversity speaker who has been invited at events that cater to anti-discrimination causes and have included gay and lesbian speakers. I considered Amy's Focus On The Family promotion similar to a scenario if one of her fellow speakers at an event, promoted a group who advocated that people with dwarfism aren't fit to be parents of average sized children. It would make the whole event somewhat awkward and would contradict the purpose of the event. Of course, Amy's removal of the link could be nothing more than limiting the number of links and she needed to add her own Charity Foundation. However, for whatever, reason, Amy has removed that link now.
