Please accept our belated, yet sincere, congratulations on being honored by the Graybeards this year. Every year, outstanding members of our community who really make a difference are chosen. Once again, their choice was an excellent one! The Rockaway community is very fortunate to have people like you, who consistently go above and beyond the scope of their jobs to enhance the lives of so many in such a positive manner.
The summer camp and kidsmART after school programs, to name a few, have become invaluable staples of enrichment for our " children. In the days of constant budget cuts in education and "test prep," we seem to have lost many of the teachable moments and enrichment programs that our children need and deserve to become well-rounded teenagers and adults. Thank you both for giving our children the opportunity to discover and continue to expand their artistic horizons.
