End Of The Summer Education Series 

Stokesay Castle - August 2020

One thing we try to nail home... is that YOUR PRESENCE IS IMPACTFUL... to those who have taken time out to interact, be present and try to change the narrative for today’s youth.. we salute you.. not just at our events.. but in your own homes, schools, workplace, community, neighborhoods, to that person.. who looked at someone who is exteriorly different.. but didn’t allow that difference to affect their own efforts and trying to change the narrative within the world ... towards the positive. On this day our youth, got to interact with The Mayor, Senator, Business owners, State Troopers, Patrol officers, general mangers, other local organizations.. and more.. as equals.. powerful!

“There’s almost no greater feeling in the world than the feeling of completion, of wholeness, and of things being the way that they should be. When presented an opportunity to be better... we should be just that... Whether we take the material worldview that it’s just a chemical reaction that’s going on in our brain, or we take the more existential understanding, that something deeper is happening, either way, the experience feels incredibly profound.

On Sunday July 26, at our Tlc Fore Reading PA tournament... we had the honor.. of presenting Addison Alexander her first Golf Club Set and golf shoes. Addison first put a golf club in her hands at the Evening on the Green event last summer, an event hosted by the Manor Golf club.. and she fell in love with the sport.

Addison has been eagerly present at every TLC event, range session, caddie program, education series, family series and even gotten out just play... and not forced by hand... but encouraged by her own desire and wants...

Addison .. we say to you.. it is children like you... that provide us with this immeasurable feeling that has been expressed in innumerable ways throughout history, and it’s the subject of novels, movies, and countless other works of art. And the sensation can be summed up in five little words;”

🍷Wine and Cheese🧀 Woman’s golf Clinic

 Let this amazing fact sink in.....

“...Nina Simone once said, “I’ll tell you what freedom is to me: no fear.” When you live fearlessly, you are limitless. Think about it – doesn’t freedom in itself lead to the empowerment of women and society as a whole? Women empowerment refers to the process of improving and increasing the social, economic, political, and legal status of all women. One of its main goals is to achieve gender equality and give power to all women and girls because the truth is empowering women means empowering the world.”

What an amazing evening of fellowship, laughs and fun.. thank you to these powerful woman being fearless for trying something new and fun.. and despite the rain.. memories were made and inspiration was widespread.

Thank you Crystal Gilmore Harris, Sharon Barley and Cheryl L Heckman for making this amazing event happen.. super Proud to have witness this..
