Thank you so much for this day!

My daughter was thrilled with cheer. She plans to enroll with her friend next fall. She also called her grandparents after her golf lesson and set up some practice dates. Please forward my thanks to the wonderful volunteers who have made this day possible. We truly enjoyed all of it!

I am using my knowledge from the Sponsorship Bootcamp almost on a daily basis. It opened my eyes to how I can provide something of real value to sponsors moving forward.

After watching a recent video about the childhoods of Venus and Serena Williams...

After watching a recent video about the childhoods of Venus and Serena Williams, my oldest daughter declared that she very much wanted to try the sport of tennis. I didn’t see how it would be possible for us to due to finances. However when try it day came around she was over the moon that she would get to try it for free!! The instructor for the day was patient and kind in giving her direction. The highlight of the day was the instructor gifting her with a used tennis racket of her own and telling us where we could access a free court in town!! We plan on using some of the available scholarships from jump start to access some tennis lessons for her this year, something we would never have thought of had it not been for try it day.

We moved to GP in Dec 2021...

We moved to GP Dec 2021 and we joined thetry it day to get to know the community. It was a great way to know some activities places in town and meet some parents on site. This is our second time and my son was able to upgrade his bike skills by joining the mountain bike session. This event helps my son to settle down in GP and provided us parents, a lot of helpful information for activities in the new area. I highly appreciate the try it day. We are looking forward to the next one! I will surely set my alarm clock to make sure we get the arts and craft sessions. Thank you for organizing it!
