Jam for the Kids 2018

The 6th annual “Jam for the Kids” concert fundraiser that took place on October 19th, 2018 at the Belfry Theatre was a great success! The silent auction was bustling, and everyone enjoyed fantastic music from Jaimey Hamilton, The Unfaithful Servants, and Phantom Thieves. A huge thank you goes out to the musicians, the silent auction donors, the Belfry Theatre, and everyone who came out and supported this event!

Fishing and Canoeing on Prospect Lake with Power to Be

Saturday July 28th was an exciting day for the pediatric oncology kids and families on Prospect Lake with Power to Be.  The morning session involved a fishing outing off the dock and on the water in a row boat.  It was great fun, as the fish were hungry, nibbling and getting caught by a few of our fine "fisherkids".  It was a catch and release style of fishing and no one was injured during this outing. :) 

The afternoon session had 18 participants in two big canoes paddling around the lake taking in the sights, scenery and a few of the resident eagles.  We look forward to our next kayak outing with Power to Be and getting to know Prospect Lake a little more!

Kiowa Farms Outing

It was an amazing, sunny Sunday afternoon at KIOWA Farms!  From horseshoe throwing, chalk drawing, face painting to the main event horse riding, fun times were had by all!  The miniature horses were adorable and loved by everyone.  We look forward to this ongoing, wonderful partnership.

Thank you KIOWA!
