What a homecoming!Founders Day was such a fun and eventful
day.Thank you so much for all of your
support and joining us for the special occasion; I believe there were over 300
people out here celebrating, which means a lot to each and every one of the
boys including the alumni.
Some of the highlights of the day
were:Carl Meynardie received the
Service to Children Award for his 50 years of helping Boys Farm.The Alumni Association presented a generous
gift to Boys Farm in memory and honor of the entire Shealy Family.Scott won the pig catching contest!
I also would like to share with you, on a
personal note, the great news of the birth of my youngest son, Michael Bruce,
on April 24th!He and Rebecca
are doing very well, praise God.
also pray for Jon Wooten, a recent Boys Farm alumnus who had just finished his
Saturday work shift here in Newberry and washed his laundry at our house beforeheading back to Greenwood, where he attends college at Lander University.
asleep at the wheel and crashed his truck into a tree.He broke several ribs and severely damaged
his right leg and ankle.He just got out
of surgery last night (but remains in the hospital) and is still in a great
deal of pain.A reminder that life is so
encouraging note, we are already looking ahead to this summer and beginning to
plan for events such as going to the beach, Christian summer camps, and other
trips and happenings that the boys really enjoy and will help create wonderful
your help to make these plans reality.In addition to rising costs, these next three months are a time in which
we experience a significant decrease in financial support almost every year.If you are able, would you consider help
making up the difference this year?We
thank God for your support and remain faithful.
