15: Marilyn, Zachary has thoroughly enjoyed gymnastics because of the place and opportunities you have provided for him. We are grateful for a place that he feels safe, accepted, loved and challenged. I appreciate the fact that I can drop off a bouncing, active, high energy boy and pick up a subdued, tired, hungry boy that doesn’t MIND a shower after he is done! I thank you for the investment you have made in our family and the growth that I have watched take place in Zachary this past year. Much appreciation, Stacy Anderson Dawn, Thank you for all the wonderful gifts you have provided through Rising Stars. It has been many fun filled years for my girls! Happy Holidays ~The Studyvins Dearest Marilyn, We appreciate all that you do for our children and community!
