Yarra Ranges SCKC says .........
THANKS!!!! The directors, Buddies and general staff were overwhelmed when I arrived Monday afternoon with my suitcase absolutely stuffed with the LO's you all contributed, packaged into mini kits with the SEI books, co-ordinating papers and embellishments! It was almost as overwhelming to experience their excited gratitude first hand as it was to receive the amazing response from you ladies.
After a lovely dinner and a welcome talk the buddies enthusiastically began the task of creating the precious books for the children that attend the Yarra Ranges camp. Many of the staff and directors commented that this much "first night enthusiasm" about the memory books was unheard of, the buddies embraced the challenge, even the guys seemed to enjoy the process. And the LO's created so enthusiastically by you ladies were complimented with beautiful covers, made ready for a week full of memories to remind the children 365 days a year of their joyful week at camp!!
Truly you guys continue to Thank me for offering you the opportunity to help SCKC, it really is me that needs to Thank You, I have had the most wonderful experience giving the buddies their books and knowing that at the end of this week 29 little kids will leave with their memories wrapped up in a book full of and made with the purest Love!
