Thank you for the hard work and life long memories!
Thank you to all the staff, campers, and participants at Piers Park Sailing Center, Courageous Sailing Center, Camp Harbor View, Boston Children's Museum, Harry McDougough Sailing Center, Black's Creek in Quincy, and the Save the Harbor/Save the Bay Staff. You have all reached out to over a thousand youth throughout the city of Boston. Many of the participants of Boston Harbor Explorers, All Access Boston Harbor, and Fishing 101 were able to fish, sail, boat and explore Boston Harbor for the first time, creating life long memories.
Although I spent half of the summer in the office managing the programs, the times I spent at the sites made it all worth while and unforgettable. Every child had a smile on their face as they investigated the waterfront. From crab challenges to the first fish caught bragging rights, the summer was a success for all. This summer Save the Harbor/Save the Bay reached over a thousand youth in and around and for many it was their first time fishing, boating, and exploring the waterfront, where life long memories have been created on the Boston waterfront.
As the summer comes to a close, the memories and experiences we have all created for the families of Boston and the staff around us will be passed on. As I head back into my high school classroom, where I teach Biology, I will bring my experiences you have all helped create into the lives of many more students. I hope that you continue to spread the experiences you have had with those around you. Everyone deserves to enjoy and share the waterfront. Thank you for sharing summer 2010 with us and we hope to see you on the docks, boats or at the pier next summer.
