We had a great time today taping an upcoming segment of RCN's Spanish-language TV program "Nuestro Valle."
Priscilla Moreira, our Allentown Site-based Coordinator, Big Brother Michael Martínez, and Little Brother Ivan Piña did a great job with Host Tony Ortiz.
As soon as we know the June air dates for the program we will post them here so you can watch it if you have RCN for your cable TV provider.
Thank you to WFMZ 69 News for joining us for this month's Waiting List Club event. We appreciate their segment on BBBSLV and our need for more community volunteers to be Bigs to our Littles on the waiting list.
Watch their news segment here:
And special thanks to the Lehigh Valley Zoo for bringing their animals to meet us so we could learn about them.
Recently we visited with Big Sister Brynn and Little Sister Kim to talk about their relationship through BBBSLV.
They participate in our High School Bigs program that pairs high school Bigs with middle school Littles. Brynn attends Liberty High School, where she is the BBBSLV High School Big of the Year, and Kim attends Northeast Middle School.
Today 11 Big/Little matches celebrated the end of the school year at Fountain Hill Elementary School. BBBSLV recognized three graduating seniors from Liberty High School. One Big Sister has been paired with her Little Sister for three school years.
We are grateful for the support from Principal Lisa Lynch, Community School Coordinator Paige Hoffman, and the After School Coordinator Cassie Meckes.
The afternoon consisted of a word art project where the Bigs and Littles selected words that described their match relationship. Little Sister Skie was thankful that her Big Sister Elizabeth came every week to play games with her.
