It has now been one week since the Seattle Seahawks won the Super Bowl. Most who know me are familiar with my near total devotion to the Pittsburgh Steelers. A devotion that is full of passion. Living in the great Northwest also means you have to be a passionate Seattle Seahawks fan. At times this causes a devoted and passionate fan to have severe inner conflicts. I was certainly pulling for my home state team Seattle Seahawks to win the Super Bowl and I get to share the excitement with neighbors and friends while the excitement lasts. However, I will continue to wear proudly my Steelers cap as the new football season starts up again in the near future.
Fortunately, I have passion for things beyond my football favorites. My passion flows into the work taken on by the “Friends of Copey”. I am hoping many of you who follow this Blog share some of your own passion for the Learning Center as “friends”.
There is so much to be passionate about this week. The Learning Center begins its 2014 school year. The Learning Center starts with veteran Peace Corps volunteer Eve Solomon leading the way with two new Peace Corps volunteer teachers responsible for the educational services provided by the Learning Center. This year’s curriculum has been completed and the doors are ready to swing open for many students to come through.
The Learning Center will have the Anne G. Broady Scholarship funds to help more kids benefit from the educational service. Soon, we will be notified of the scholarship recipients making us partners in the Learning Center experience. We will get to see our donations at work.
As you can expect, there are more things going on and these will be highlighted in future Posts. Therefore, do not stop being a follower. In fact, tell a family member or friend about the “Friends of Copey”. We are approaching 1,000 visits to the Blog so check it out and be among those being counted. If you are a new follower and “friend”, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and say hello. Let me know your thoughts about our efforts in Copey, Costa Rica.
