Our main focus again this season has been with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program in Richmond. A great program with awesome results. WHO WE SERVE

Page 4 "As a Big Sister with Big Brothers Big Sisters, I greatly appreciate the opportunities offered to my little and me through this great organization. We had the pleasure of spending a few hours with Tom learning about Richmond and nature while on the James. My little and I felt safe and learned a great deal about the area." "Sails Angels taught us about the rich history along the river and in Richmond - about original explorers, early settlements, civil war battles, and old factories - all while keeping us engaged through activities. Sails Angels helps the community with a big heart and warm welcome to the river, and we can't wait to come back and explore some of the other activities they provide." "So far we have gone canoe sailing, kayaking, swimming in the river and paddle boarding. We could not have asked for better experiences and plan to continue going back to learn more about the James River." "If you are looking for a hands-on way to get your family involved in cleaning up and learning a TON about the James River and her history, this is the group for you! We always leave wanting to come back as soon as possible." WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
