Yesterday was the ribbon cutting ceremony for Carl’s great project. Thanks to all the donors who made this possible! We dedicated the project to the boy who drowned in the posa last month. It really served to bring some positive feelings back about the posa. The whole ranch was there for the blessing by the Padre and the ribbon cutting ceremony. The father of the boy who drowned even attended. Then the ranch threw a big barbeque taking advantage of the new facilities. No one is allowed to swim yet until all the safety equipment is set, but the kids played games and enjoyed themselves.

(for those donors who were not actually from Exeter, sorry. We debated what to put but thought that soley “friends from the US” would be too general)
