PineGrove Ranch & Family Resort --- weekend July 2013
I wanted to let everyone know how much fun I had and how welcomed everyone always makes me feel --- just like part of a big family.
The children and adults in the program are very special people.
The people that run this organization are very hard working people and always make a day in these children and adults fun, educational and try their hardest to help them live their lives to the fullest.

I used to help this organization and always enjoyed it.

On Sept 10 through 12, 2010 thirty of our members and their families took our annual weekend trip to Pine Grove Dude Ranch. We had a BLAST! We can't wait until next year to get together again. Thanks to all who came and made the trip so much fun!
