According to the African proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child." We are fortunate to live in our South Lake Tahoe "village," which is filled with community support for our kids. This summer, Edgewood Tahoe exemplified how our community steps up when our club needs them. According to Natalie Cazares, unit director for our Bijou Site, "During the summer, most of our Bijou members have not been able to attend the club because we are only able to offer the all-day programs from our main site. Having transportation to and from the club has always been a challenge during that time for our Bijou families." The challenge was turned into an opportunity this year with support and a shuttle bus from Edgewood. Plus, the drivers volunteered their time to drive the kids. Wow! What a great "village" we live in. Our kids, our families and our club all say thank you Edgewood.
