Great News! Josh’s First Ride

Hey everybody, we just heard some Great News and we want to share it with you!

This is Josh – and this is Josh’s first time riding on a horse.  This was really exciting for Josh and for everyone around him.  Special thanks to the instructor, who was great keeping the horse very calm.  And a huge thanks to Josh’s team for supporting him with his first ride!

Way to go Josh – this looks like a blast!  We’re looking forward to seeing a lot more pictures as you keep on riding.

Like to ride horses too?  Leave us a comment and tell us where you go to ride!

How cool is this?


Hey Everyone:

Some great pics of Candice H having a visit with firefighters from the Trail Fire Department and getting an opportunity to see what it’s like inside a fire truck.

So very cool, way to go Candice!


David Wells jamming at Ellison’s…!

Check this out! From Norm Richard:

 I thought I would share what happened on Saturday at Ellison’s Cafe where I organize Acoustic Unplugged Sessions. One of the musicians I had booked used to be homeless and wasn’t confident that he was up for this but I talked him into it, he’s an award winning sculptor who slipped through the cracks and plays at least four instruments. He plays piano and once told me he heard David play one too and was very impressed.


 Near the end of his session, he asked if it would be ok to invite David, who was there with Brenda, to play for the audience and help him out. David was unsure if he was solo but happy to do this, he played mostly with his thumbs and did very well. The place was packed with many standing as the headliners were about to come on and they were professional caliber. People were amazed and David was in his glory, he received a huge applause and compliments.
 The next act came up and started to play bluegrass, David is not allowed to play tambo
urine at the bluegrass jam that we attend due to tradition, so he plays shaker and harmonica instead (but dreams of showing them what he can do on it). He had brought his tambourine that day and asked the lead musician Craig, if he could join in, Craig accepted. I reminded David to keep it soft and he did very well. Craig was impressed, encouraged him and even gave him a solo break. The audience loved it and David was beaming. The music rhythm was even and just right for David, he played til the end, got more applause and compliments.
 This made my day and David’s, hope it brightens yours too. Here’s a couple photos and a short video ☼♫

Great News!

Hey everybody, Happy New Year to one and all.

As we head in to a brand new year, it’s a perfect time to think about all the positive things happening in our communities – and here is a great example for a couple of the gentlemen we support!

Howard has a talent for taking amazing pictures, and for Christmas he turned his photos into a photography calendar.

Check out Howard (right) showcasing his work.

Way to go Howard!

Landon has great sewing skills, and he has been putting them to use making coin purses, pouches, and bags for gifts and for sale.

Check out Landon’s handiwork (below).

Awesome job Landon!

Special thanks to Landon, Howard, and Reasha for sharing this Great News with all of us.
