As we look forward to warmer weather, there are numerous opportunities for our youth: summer camps, scholarships, employment, and more. For the past four years, I've sent a spring newsletter to share items which may be useful for your family. This message is chock full of helpful information. If I missed an item, please let me know and I'll share it via social media.
Do you know that Comcast offers an
