Basketball 4 LYFE Volunteers meeting January 20th

All,

Happy New Year!!!!!  Thank you all for helping Basketball 4 LYFE become one of the fastest growing organizations in St. Mary's County.  With your help we were able to serve hundreds of youth /teens, and adults in Southern Maryland, providing snacks, tutoring, mentoring, positive programing, dancing, stepping, and the more.  Thanks to the generosity of donors and the handwork of over 30 volunteers we were able to present events that improve the quality of living in the community, focusing on education, cancer awareness, homelessness awareness, and teen delinquency prevention.  Our work is not done and we need more good people to continue making a difference.  Please come join us on January 20th as we review a blessed year and plan for another great year in 2015.
