We are pleased to host Child Protection Activist, Elizabeth Smart on Thursday evening, May 8, 2014.
Elizabeth will tell her personal story chronicled in her best-selling book, My Story. She and other abduction survivors worked with the Dept. of Justice to create a survivors’ guide, entitled ’You’re Not Alone: The Journey from Abduction to Empowerment.” Smart’s personal story will inspire men and women to remain hopeful when faced with difficult situations in their lives.
The First Tee of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Golf Association have provided a unique curriculum to our After School Programs, instilling life lessons and an introduction to the game of golf. They recently brought kids to watch the Boston Bruins as guests of TD Bank. Pictured in the TD Bank Community Clubhouse, our excited group finds themselves on the Stadium's LED screen!
