HOPES FLOAT INC
December 10, 2010

I love working with the elderly and disabled, they open my eyes to just how precious life really is. When you can not only spend time with them but be on a boat on Colorado waters...what more can you ask for. This is a great opportunity to do service in a way that my husband loves too. I don't have a favorite trip but the experiences are like none other, from rescued mtn goats, to kissing fish... especially since the group is headed up by a wonderful couple with more experience then I could ever imagine in fishing, boating and having fun safely, to the needs of the people on board while catching the "magics of the moments". Thank you Hopes float, other volunteers and clients(young and old) for the best memories every summer!!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

all aspects of laughter, training, promoting/advertising and true friendship :-)

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have more volunteers, sponsors and clients.. as I know there are more people out there who would never even think of this kind of company existing.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I helped thread fishing hooks & put worms on them to holding the pole and casting to sharing stories to putting more sunscreen on people and getting cold water...whatever the group on board/on land needed so the experience was trully memorable.
