AUGUST 2015 - MENTORING by Julie Asmus: 
The mentoring girls went to the Chanhassen Dinner Theater in August to see "The Li+le Mermaid". We couldn't have asked for
better seats. We were on the end table and the actors came out in to the audience numerous times right behind the girls. The actors were crouched on the end cap right next to them several times. The acting was great, the music was wondetful and the girls had a very fun time. I would say introducing them to the theater was a huge success.

Each mentor also took their girl back-to-school shopping in August. Each girl recieved $150 from our club to be able to get school supplies, shoes, and some clothes to look sharp for the first day of school. I'm always amazed how thrifty they are with the lttle money they have. They shop the bargains to get the best deal they can. I wish we could video tape our shopping experiences so you could  see how excited they are to get fun, new things forschool.

We truly make a difference in these girls lives.
