Powell Construction Sponsors “A Day To Remember”

August 20th, 2010 Posted in Powell News

We had a wonderful day out on the water with In His Wakes, a non-profit organization that helps provide area youth with “A Day to Remember.”   It’s the opportunity of a lifetime for predominately at-risk youth, giving them an unforgettable day on the water.

Participants engage in various water sports such as swimming, boat riding, knee boarding, water skiing and wake boarding.

These activities break through walls of fear, distrust, and low self-esteem and expose the joy and smiles that have been suppressed by a life time of challenges.

Through the on-water activities, the time invested in the participant’s life, and the life changing message of Jesus Christ,  “A Day to Remember” becomes a starting point for a new life for the participants as they gain confidence, self esteem, and new found hope to face the challenges of life.

This is the second year in a row that Powell Construction has sponsored the event, held at a local lake. Thanks to all the volunteers who came out to help and thanks to Mark and Lynn for the use of the lake.
