Back to school already?
Wow! Back to school time comes so quick!
With the beginning of the new school year I get really busy & want to make sure I post some quick updates about some of our summer & back to school events.
Three Project Potential Scholarships were awarded this summer to local children. Two of the winners attended summer day camps and one attended an art class. I will update the website with pictures of the kids & their experiences soon.
Check out the picture of Justin & the snake!
Check out the new web pages about the Yucatan Project this summer! Also lots of great pics here on the blog.
Carrie's Heart board member & volunteer Nora Nasr made a trip to Egypt this summer and visited two programs for children & young adults with disabilities. I hope to update the website soon with a news paper article written about one of the programs, pictures and Nora's words about her experiences. Carrie's Heart in Cairo...great job Nora!
Back to School:
We kicked off the new school year with two fun events! Basketball....and Burgers!
Thanks to the generosity of the Comets a group attended the last home game of the Comet's season at the Toyota Center. We all had a great time!
We had a nice turn out at the Burgers for Books event at Fuddruckers. Everyone enjoyed their burgers & time with friends and family. Thank you to all who came to the event & to those who donated school supplies for the drive!
I look forward to a great school year and lot's of fun with Carrie's Heart!
