“Stay positive and happy. Work hard and don’t give up hope. Be open to criticism and keep learning. Surround yourself with happy, warm and genuine people.” By Tena Desae
I am enjoying a very relaxing time in east Tennessee for a few days before I start up with college business later this week. Relaxation has included my granddaughter providing me with a “mud-mask” treatment, leaving me with a fresh look. Next, I suspect my toes will get their annual bright red paint job. Ha Ha! The life of a grandpa.
Then, the following week I will have the pleasure of welcoming the guests from Copey.
2019 Pathway Project…Urgent Call!!!
The Goal: $5,600.00 Actual Income: $3,422.00 Deadline: June 5, 2019
We are running behind on our fundraising efforts for the 2019 Pathway Project. BUT…let’s not lose faith!
We have one final week for contributions and commitments. So, if you are still CONSIDERING financially supporting the 2019 Pathway Project, the time is now to decide. This is the final push to raise at least $1,000.00 more. We can make adjustments to our plans if our funds are short to allow us to accomplish most of our plans. “When many will do just a little for kids…..!”
We have a great team of supporters on the ground ready for the arrival of the Copey guests. These volunteers help save money on local transportation, housing, and meals. They donate their personal time and talent to cover many activities designed to provide our guests a real close look at our country, culture, and people. They are committed to this year being better than all of the previous years.
We just need a few more funds to cover some of the costs volunteers should not be expected to pay for. The method for donating is provided below. I thank many of you who have already committed funds. You have us off to a really great start.
Lizeth and Bob have completed their 90 days of volunteerism at the Copey Learning Center. They are featured in the photo on the far left along with the two EH College students on the right. Both Lizeth and Bob are veterans in the field of teaching in remote locations and the EH College students have learned much from them.
A couple of new volunteer teachers have arrived at the Learning Center to replace Lizeth and Bob. Of course, now Megan and Madeline are teamed with these teachers for the balance of their time in Copey.
