Dear Friends of the L. A.
During this most beautiful time of year a thought came to mind.
As the grandmother of a special needs four year old boy, Hunter
Lawrence Frechette, I came in contact with a school dedicated
to special needs, a pre-school for children like Hunter. I became
involved because I was privileged to take Hunter to this school
each week; to watch the miracle begin with the most dedicated,
gifted teacher Hunter and children like him could ask for.
To see pictures of my grandson in his room after he put on his
tiny blue slippers to sit in his big, soft easy chair to read
was all I needed to know what he's been taught, not only by his
parents, but by this very special school he attends three days
Much of the teaching and recreational supplies required for these
special children are personally purchased by their teacher, Robin
Bartholomew. I want to help and for you to help me get things
that enable Robin to teach these children important life skills
that most of us never recognize as important or take for granted.
Things like simply washing their hands, brushing their teeth
or telling you what their name is and where they live.
Recognizing weather, teaching ways of expressing themselves such
as signing their needs when they are unable to speak.
It is an act of pure love on your part.
Donations can be made for the: Development Therapy School Pre-
School for special needs children, Dayton, Maine.
We send the best to each and every one of you.
Louise & Carl Frechette
