We are very pleased to report a grant funded by Cincom Systems, Inc. and its CEO, Mr. Tom Nies of Cincinnati, Ohio. Mr. Nies’ interest in children’s programs has provided the LTEF and the Lake Thunderbird BoatHouse two gifts. The first is a $700 scholarship grant for disadvantaged kids. We had three scholarship kids in our second camp this summer. The second gift of $800 has allowed us to purchase 138 copies of a wonderful book by Richard Bode; “First you have to row a little boat.” This wonderful book helps define his sailing experiences as metaphors of life. Each child attending our programs will be provided a copy of this wonderful book. These grants have continued including this year. We thank Mr. Nies and Cincom Systems, Inc. for their wonderful gifts!
