December is always a busy month at the Boys Hope and Girls Hope homes. Scholars were studying for finals, Christmas shopping and baking cookies for our school based students. Unfortunately there were no snow days this month! Basketball season is in full swing, with four of our scholars playing on basketball teams.
We found time before Christmas break for a weekend getaway to a cabin in Fairplay, thanks to a generous donor. The scholars and staff enjoyed sledding, snowshoeing, and games. It was an absolute treat to see our scholars having so much fun in the mountains!
We hosted Christmas parties at each of the schools we partner with for our School Based Enrichment Program. The students enjoyed cookies and juice and wrote letters to their pen pals from the Boys Hope Girls Hope program in Guatemala.

We are looking forward to a great start to 2011!
