Thanks for the help getting us set up last fall. I just completed the first successful season of the kayak program at John Glenn M.S. I had to scale down the amount of kids I took out on the river this spring for the advanced class due to boat sizes and transportation, but here are some pictures from our trip. The kids will have spent a total of 6 days out on the river this spring, this was the first time for most of them off the pavement. The school had to supply everyone with the most basic of equipment due to the 80% poverty at out school and the lack of any experience outside. The kids who have completed their first year will now have the chance to come back and become assistants for the next year’s intro classes. I hope to keep them involved until they turn 16 and I can find them work at summer camps or parks.

Thanks again,
