Our in-person holiday party may be on hold this year, but our fundraiser will
still go on! This year’s beneficiary will be Urban Boatbuilders. Their mission is “to empower
youth to succeed in work and life through woodworking and experiential learning.”
Urban Boatbuilders will be joining our December 15th Zoom meeting with a presentation about
their life-changing programs for youth that provide opportunities and skills needed to succeed
in life. They work on these skills primarily through building boats, paddles, and longboards.
“Building Boats, Launching Lives”
Marilynn Kaplan and John Schlagel won a class in paddle-making at one of our Holiday silent
auctions. It was fun, but very hard work, even with kids helping them every step of the way.
Following the Urban Boatbuilders presentation, there will be an opportunity for you to make a
one-time donation. Your gift will benefit the lives of the kids in both the onsite apprenticeship
program and the community partnerships program that takes place in various schools.
We’re still working on the details but hope you plan to join us!!
