Back-to-School Outreach

  We were able to provide backpacks filled with school supplies at our annual back-to-school outreach on Saturday, August 16. We did things a little differently this year. We received a grant at the beginning of the year to purchase all the supplies and backpacks, so we were able to get everything in bulk earlier […]

Back to School

We handed out over 140 backpacks filled with supplies families at the North Grand Villas, Cathy’s Pointe, and several places in between the week before school started. Most of our kids got their backpacks on Saturday the 17th at our annual Back-to-School cookout at the North Grand Villas. Now that we’re also at Cathy’s Pointe which is […]

Kickin’ it Old School

Every once in a while, we sing and do motions to the classic song “Lean on Me.”  The song and motions have been around 20 plus years, but that doesn’t stop the kids from enjoying them.  Below are pics of us doing the song at Rose Plaza last week: Oh, and since Suzanne had her camera […]
