Happy Core Values Wednesday everyone!


This week, in honor of Earth Day, I am inviting all of you to take Action to put Responsibility to work! As people of this planet, we all have the responsibility to protect it. Yesterday, the Frost Valley staff participated in the Roadside Clean Up! We cleaned up the road from the furthest point on Frost Valley Rd all the way to East Valley Ranch. Over 16 miles of road! We also cleaned all of the property on Main Camp, including trails, playing fields, and the roads! It was a beautiful day to be outside and make a difference!

So here is my Core Values in Action Challenge for you! Participate in an Earth Day Event near you! As I mentioned earlier, Responsibility is doing the small bits of good where we are, and I truly believe if we all do our small bits of good, the world can be a better place. So let’s all make it a CLEANER and GREENER place, and do our bit this week to take care of the Earth!


Here is a link to the Earth Day Network’s website, where you can learn how to get involved near you! http://www.earthday.org/?gclid=CIytssfAsNMCFQSHswod6qMGng


Send me an email or letter with pictures showing me how you contributed on Earth Day and put Responsibility into Action, and I will send you a Core Values Tshirt! All stories should be sent to lhutchinson@frostvalley.org! Can’t wait to see all of the good our Frost Valley Family will do this weekend!


Peace, Love, Bibbley!
