From the Founder -

Sad Day at Frontier Girls

by Kerry Cordy
Many of you who have gotten to know me over the years know that the last two years have been incredibly hard as I struggled to care for my mother who has Alzheimer's. Nearly two years ago I hired Sara Rauta to be my office manager so that I could dedicate more time to my mom. Last summer my mother got bad enough that the doctors began talking about possible hospice and we placed her in a specialized Alzheimer memory care facility called Willow Springs. During this very difficult time in my life, Sara ran Frontier Girls almost single handedly for several months. We would not still be here without her and I cannot express my gratitude to her enough.

The good news is that after placing my mother in specialized care she rebounded and is now quite healthy and happy again. She loves living at Willow Springs and while I stil take her on outings nearly every day, I can go back to working full time again for the first time in over two years. The sad news is that with me being back in the office full time, there is simply not enough work for both Sara and I. Add some major financial changes my family is currently going through, and I simply could not financillay justify keeping Sara on full time anymore.

Many of you were blessed enough to meet Sara in person last March at the flag day in Pennsylvania and many more have corresponded with her over the last 20 months. Sara has been an amazing blessing to Frontier Girls and it was with a very heavy heart that I had to let her go. She truly loved Frontier Girls and losing her job here was very emotional for her. Please keep her in your prayers.

One World Observatory

One World Observatory is an attraction that has been open for about 2 years now and they are really trying to get involved with different scout groups in the New York City area. They have now issue a scout package which is a $25 ticket for each scout and for every 10 that attend the group will receive 1 complimentary ticket for either a Troop Leader/Adult.

Along with this, they are launching an Architecture Merit Badge Series for scouts. This will be a unique experience as scouts will have the opportunity to work closely with their Tour Ambassadors throughout their visit.

The link below takes you to a video that shows you what an average day at the observatory is like.

Barnes and Nobles Summer Reading Program
Barnes & Noble Bookstores offer a free reading program for the summer. Go to a local store and ask for the reading log, or print it from their website. Each kid fills in the log with info on eight books they've read, and then returns it to the store for a free book from a selection of 30 different titles ranging from Curious George to the Owl Diaries. There are some great books on the list, and the program runs all summer!
