During 2018 and 2019 we had our front yard and drive-way paved as well as new fences built.

 

The Saal Paving Crew did a great job!

Sponsored Child: Joshua lives in Northern Nicaragua. We have been sponsoring Joshua for several years now after our former SP reached 18 and went into post-secondary training. Just over $1.00 a day from our Drop-In's concession goes towards our sponsored child. Youth members exchange letters and drawings with our sponsored child several times a year.

Career & Employment Opportunity Program : Work on building resume writing and job interview skills. Kids may also research entrepreneurial projects and potential career opportunities.  

Peace Crane Project: Spent a lot of hard working time making over 50 cranes to exchange with children around the world.

Kids Kitchen: Try your hand at cooking every Wednesday. New recipes, life skills, and lots of delicious food!
