Teachers are special

The quote “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing you may have entertained an angels without knowing it.”  Well, I know who they are.  They are all the volunteers who go out of their way to give, they see a need and fill it.   From a chance meeting during the twilight pedaling I met some teachers/angels.  Perhaps you will recognize them from

Twilight Pedaling

this photo taken Thursday and the subsequent photos taken on Saturday.  I mentioned the Mail-Art in passing and I offered the envelopes, someone else said “I’ll take care of the  postage”  and before you know it we had a another art project for these children.  Under 21 is the creation of Andrea a South Grade teacher, under the umbrella of Virtue in a Pocket.  It had its beginnings right here in Lake Worth and serves children from DelRay, Boynton Beach, Boca.  They gather every Saturday 11-4 with an open curriculum thats fitted to each child’s grasp.  Parents were seen coming and going as well as volunteers.  Compass had given space for their first two summer camps.  Now they operate out of Milagro Center in DelRay.  This Saturday they were back home in Lake Worth as the Center was not available.   Programs like these coming from the heart are always underfunded and looking for a location. The artists who give their time, that I saw, were Kelly Kingston and the Outreach Program Mgr. of the Milagro Center Steve Backhus.  Two huge bags of paints and Crayola arrived, a donation from Skeffingtons Furniture and Mattress.
