Summer Scholarship Program with Young at Art
In these uncertain times, one constant is our summer scholarship program with Young at Art. The following letter is from the mother of our first recipient of 2020.

"To the Members of the Gold Coast Watercolor Society"
"Because of your generosity, Olive has been able to attend Young At Art camp on a scholarship. She, like other children being affected by the pandemic, has not had much social interaction. This opportunity has allowed this to happen, as well as allowing her to explore her creativity. Throughout the week she has been engaged in the scheduled events, all allowing her to come home and share with her family what fun it was."

"This opportunity has also allowed other important things to transpire. Also because of the pandemic we have been out of work. Since Olive has been in camp, we have had time to find and secure employment. I, myself, am at work now or I would be there to meet with you and personally thank you with a heart filled with gratitude."
Olive
"Again, what you have done for Olive and our family is greatly needed and appreciated. If I can be of service to you and your organization, don't hesitate to ask. I would be empowered to also Pay it Forward."

"Continue to stay well and be Great!"
"Olive's Mom"
