Eagle's Pride

Dylan Smith, Carson Snyder and their DAA Travel Baseball Team spent the day off from school on President's Day volunteering with the residents at Wesley Enhanced Living in Doylestown. The residents and boys worked together on a inter-generational activity designing, painting and decorating unique and individual birdhouses. The boys from the team enjoyed the opportunity to give back to the community and the residents were thrilled to spend the morning with such polite, creative, and energetic young men.

Wing Tips
