They were so elated with the warmth shown from our staff upon arrival. Kudos to you all for making them feel welcomed! They were also very impressed with the wonderful mannerism of our peer leaders. They brought t-shirts for our peer leaders, school supplies for our supply closet, and trinkets for our treasure box.
