Spending A Summer With The RAA

Dear Editor,

This letter is for Christine and Marina, who have been running the RAA summer camp.

Since June 2001, my two children and nephew have been members of RAA. The summer camp in particular has been such a beautiful part of their childhood. As a parent, it is truly a blessing to have a safe place for my kids to express their creativity openly and with such enthusiasm. I miss the days when they were little and would proudly show me the masterpiece they created and you could just see the pride in their eyes. That's when a parent knows that their child feels worthy, precious and so very valuable. Thank you both for giving my children that sense of value.

This year was my daughter's first year as a junior counselor. I say "first" year because being a member of RAA seemed so very natural for her, I don't think she can imagine spending her summer any other way. We are so grateful that she had the opportunity to give back to such a gem in our neighborhood. Jimmy and Thomas are looking forward to returning to RAA as counselors as well.

Your energy is endless and apparently

Letters effortless! I don't know how you manage to keep the momentum year after year but I would like to take this opportunity to tell you how much you mean to this community. Thank you just doesn't seem enough.
