At Learning Curves We Thank You
As most of you know, the heartache of this past year for the Hammond Family and Learning Curves team has been almost more than we can bear.
As this year draws to a close and we approach the Holiday Season, I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere and heartfelt thanks to each of you for your kind words of encouragement and shared sorrow. This has without a doubt helped give us strength to go on with our projects at both Learning Curves and Smiles for Hope in honor of our wife and mother, Frances.
Learning Curves has once again been able to make a significant contribution to the efforts of our Smiles for Hope Foundation. I am writing this newsletter as I make my return to Utah from the Dominican Republic where our team of 25 Crown Council members and 12 Dominican volunteers were blessed to be able to serve, with a full complement of restorative dentistry, nearly 600 of the poorest of the poor in their own villages. My children and grandchildren have committed to join with me on this and future expeditions as we host these compassionate groups of volunteer dental professionals.
I express my deepest gratitude to each of you who play such an important role in our continuing efforts to pick up the pieces and move forward.
Act Now For Next Year
Our 2010 rides are filling quickly and spots are becoming limited. Our Grand Circle Adventure in May is nearly sold out. Check your calendar and our web site to determine which ride and time will be best for you. At Learning Curves, we would love to have the opportunity to ride with you in 2010.
If you are looking for an experience of a lifetime, contact Angel now to book one of the 5 remaining spaces of our ten-day international Trail of the Great Bear (Canadian Rockies) ride. We would love to have you join us—and I promise you that you will be glad you did.
Our July ride with Gordon and Rella Christensen is filling up quickly as are our August and September rides in 2010. Please visit our web site to discover more about each ride and take advantage of our year-end special.
