Hey, Ian!

I have a favor to ask.

I’m work­ing on the SJI Sum­mer Activ­i­ty Cal­en­dar for our Youth 2009. This will be our third year to offer this to par­ents, fam­i­lies and to our com­mu­ni­ty. The cal­en­dar is FREE with the help of the San Juan Island Pre­ven­tion Coali­tion. I’m in the midst of col­lect­ing infor­ma­tion from var­i­ous peo­ple and orga­ni­za­tions, but thought, maybe I’m miss­ing some­one! Would you be able to inquire if some­one is offer­ing a new or unad­ver­tised youth pro­gram this sum­mer on SJI, they could con­tact me to add it to the calendar?

Last year’s cal­en­dar came out of neces­si­ty for me. I found some pro­grams weren’t adver­tised well, so they were can­celled because of low par­tic­i­pa­tion, or oth­ers would fill up before I heard about them. So, hav­ing all the infor­ma­tion in one place, made it a bet­ter sum­mer for my kids! The cal­en­dars will be avail­able at the Children’s Fes­ti­val (May 2) at the SJIPC booth and will be mailed out from the SJISD parent/guardian mail­ing list and var­i­ous email groups.

I feel the more pro­grams we can add, the more use­ful this tool becomes for fam­i­lies! I put mine on the refrig­er­a­tor and we kept on top of what was avail­able through­out the summer!

Thanks again, Ian, for your sup­port of the pro­grams we’ve been involved in. It takes a Village…
