A Word From The Coordinator

What does your journey look like?

We all go through this journey of life. How we all go is what makes us uniquely different. Some like to be in the limelight while others like to stay behind the scenes. Some like to blaze a trail while others like to follow a clear path. Some like to jump in the water while others are content to stay on the shore. Some like to experience new things while others stay with the familiar. Some may stick to one plan while others are more flexible.

These unique differences can be seen in our worldview, our Christian walk, and even our homeschooling. I would love to hear what your personal journey is like. Feel free to share with me at coordinator@rsvlreach.org.

March Activities at a Glance

PSP Day-Parties/Skating/Parks

The 2nd Friday of each month is devoted to PSP-Parties/Skating/Parks. These activities are open to all ages including teens, but there must be an accompanying adult.
February is our PSP - Valentine's Party at the Skate Station from 2:00-4:00 p.m. Don’t forget to fill out the sign-up form that is already up on the website. The cost is $5 a skater and an extra $2 if you want rollerblades or a walker to aide inexperienced skaters. Please bring the correct change. REACH will provide drinks and a sweet treat. Feel free to bring a snack to share with others. I look forward to seeing all of the crafty valentine boxes/bags for those participating in the valentine exchange.

In March we will just have a PSP - Park Day. Let’s plan to meet at Russellville City Park from 1:00-3:00.

I hope to see you all soon! Allison Hoke
