...and...wow...it was beautiful !!!
Then the children were sitted in a circle on the floor and listened to Christmas stories told by one very talented girl scout. We had a lot of sweet treats and ...
Christmas presents for all the children.
Long after the party, the girl scouts as well as the children were talking about the Holiday. Some girl scouts are ready to come back and work as volunteers.
Spring Clean Up:
Again this spring, on April 25th, a group of young people, their parents and Youth Ministry representatives from
The Chapel in Lincoln Park volunteered for some garden work.
Big thank you, the result was stunning !!!
Trips to New York City:
New York is a perfect place for entertainment and education. Thank to our sponsor Lorreine LaShell we were able to send one of the families to see "Christmas Spectacular" at the Radio City Music Hall. And again, it was the first time for the children to experience a live show. They enjoyed it so much that the parents are now saving to be able to see "The Lion King" on Broadway.
Our New Backyard:
A group of volunteers from Jacksonville Chapel under the supervision of Ken Seiter spent two Saturdays on building a fence around the yard to make our children play safe. We greatly appreciate the time and the hard work put into the project.
We are grateful to Northern Frontier Camp and Royal Kids Camp for having our eight children spent a week of fun with them.
We also would like to thank the sponsors for their generosity that allowed the kids to participate.
Our volunteers Kate and Liz made a fantastic toy box and donated toys for our outdoor activities. Great Job, Girls !!! Thank you very much.
Time for Halloween again !
Our children participated in:
For the second time the children were honored to meet, have fun and be instructed by John S. Pratt, the Hall of Fame drummer and composer of West Point.
Jack, we thank you for making the time and spend it with our children !!!
