For several years, St Joan of Arc has been bringing volunteers to the Special Olympics Fall Classic event in Hershey. My contact person has been Karene Robinson but I will avoid naming others for fear of leaving out someone. These folks have provided help in so many ways I cannot list them. The athletes and other volunteers and staff of Special Olympics Area M greatly appreciate the many hours and many smiles donated buy these folks. They have cooked, served food, handed out medals, and generally cheered on our athletes. Thank you.
I also feel compelled to comment on another thing I noted in working with these folks. They exhibit a sense of community and genuine affection for each other and for our athletes that I find remarkable. In my 25+ years with Special Olympics, I have meet many giving people. Your group stands out even among those.
I sincerely hope we can continue to work together, at our concession stand, as well as any other areas you would like, for many, many years to come. You have become a part of our family and I hope we are a small part of yours.
