To the Editor:
As a new member of this community, I want to first say how impressed I’ve been with how family oriented Boca Grande is and how wonderful these programs are for the families and children. As a single parent, childcare is a huge focus for me. The after-school program, along with the Fun Days, were a big selling point to me when making the decision to move here just a few weeks ago.
These programs have been so helpful in making my son and I feel at home here and to settle in so easily. It's very upsetting to think that these programs may no longer be available. I can understand looking at cost, especially in this economy, but there are so many other factors involved in making such a decision.
Why wasn't the option mentioned about raising the funds necessary to keep these programs going?
All of this seems to me as though the Friends of Boca no longer care about the future and well-being of our children.
