Surfers Healing 2010 Update

Today we met with the head of recreation in Narragansett and he told us what great feedback he has received regarding the 2009 surf. We are already discussing plans for next year and it looks like we will be in the same area...South Lot..... but we will be closer to the South Pavilion (restrooms, picnic tables, wheelchair ramp to the Pavilion, etc).

As 2009 winds down we will take a short break from fund raising but rest assured we will be back on track early in 2010 with more plans to raise the funds necessary to make this an annual event.
Those wishing to donate please visit the Acts of Kindness web site:
& make sure you specify that your donation goes to Surfers Healing in RI

To be added to the volunteer list please email mrnadesimone@cox.net
The blog will be updated regularly with fund raising plans.
Thanks to all!

"Surfers Healing in RI" is on Facebook...join our group
