Letter: Thank you for supporting our parents

By on November 5, 2009

Parents As Advocates (PAA) would like to sincerely thank all of its Kaneland-area supporters for a successful Moms Retreat held October 16-18 in Elburn at the Great Lakes Leadership Campus.

At this fourth annual event, 55 mothers, both challenged and inspired by the task of raising children with disabilities, received a much needed three-day break from their everyday lives and were indulged with delicious meals, door prizes, car washes, hair cuts, massages, manicures, live theater, movies and a concert, thanks to our community’s generosity.

In this difficult economy where many households and businesses are struggling, our donations and volunteers have never been more generous.
