Please make plans to come to our next meeting! We meet every month and our next meeting is planned for July 11, 2013 at 7:00 pm at Park Circle.
Let the Buddy Walk planning begin!
Helping could be as simple as helping people register or as complex as chairing a committee.
Interested in learning more about what you can do? Interested in making this walk our own, an opportunity to showcase our wonderfully talented children?
To volunteer, please email Julia Slattery or email@example.com with any questions, suggestions, or comments.

On February 23, 2013 DSAL partnered with ECO Fitness to host the first annual Ride for Kids. The 4 hour indoor cycling event was a huge success and raised over $20,000! Monies raised will go toward bike camp this summer and other athletic camps. Michelle Annibale, Grant Baker, Katie Beck, Elizabeth Carpenter, Sam Hazeltine and Trampus Hoover came out and participated in the ride side by side with fundraisers and cheered on the riders.
Eco Staff led the charge in planning and enlisted over 70 gym members in fundraising efforts. Individuals with no connection to DSAL created teams on Firstgiving and solicited their own friends and family to raise money! Many of these same fundraisers have committed to volunteer at the camp itself this July! Thank you ECO!!!
A special thank you to Amy Hill and Grace Ayers for helping Carrie and Julia coordinate. And to Ride instructors Kyle, SJ, Lois, and Amy for all their passion for our kids!
There are lots of opportunities for social and recreational activities. See our resources page for a listing of opportunities and resources.
