A Very Special Thank You

Another summer, another package of memories to take with me when I leave.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you, children, parents, bus drivers and staff for all the kind words, special gifts, and well-wishes that I received this summer. Being a part of the Sunshine Group family has been a joy and honor for me. I started as a parent volunteer, then counselor, then director. I watched it grow and become a program for ALL children – and I have worked with so many children and families!

I have to tell you that I have been fortunate to work with some of the best teenagers and young adults. They come to work here either because they have been young students, then counselors-in-training, and then, finally, sixteen, or because they heard about the program from friends who worked a summer, and decided they wanted to be a part of something so special. In either case, I have the most wonderful staff!

We work closely with the Medway Public Schools, and the staff is supportive and inclusive. I appreciate the alliance.

I pass the baton proudly to Jess Peck, new Director, and Mark San Clemente, new Assistant Director. They will continue to make The Sunshine Group one of the most unique and special programs that Medway has to offer.

I will miss being part of something so special, and will always remember the wonderful times; the exciting field trips, swimming at the Milford Pool, talent shows, carnivals and friendships. I hope everyone has a great school year… and THANK YOU… for everything.
