Boy Scouts Visit Welles Harbor
A boy scout troop that wanted to earn a badge for learning about disabilities contacted Terri to set up a presentation. The Troop found us on the internet! Welles Harbor was the best fit for this troop. It was a GREAT visit and the Troop leader would like to set up more presentations early next year. The clients and the boys had a great time and what was supposed to be an half hour meeting took over an hour due to the involvement of the clients and the boy scouts.
