SWIMMING WITH AUTISM WATER SAFETY PROGRAM
The Fall Session has begun! Our instructors were excited to meet their students and look forward to helping them reach their goal of being safe in and around water. We will check in on their progress in October. Good luck and have fun everyone!
RIDE THE RAILS
Just wanted to say what a well organized and nice event. Our grandkids loved it! We have been to Lester Rail Trail before to ride the trains, but always had to wait in long lines. Not always a good thing! And the yummy hot dogs were an added bonus! Thanks to all who put it on! Grandma Barr
