“This event was the most fun my special needs child and I have had in a very long time, and we are eternally grateful! The pure joy on all the children’s faces was my favorite part. Volunteering made a very wonderful impact.” – Shore Volunteer, Weiss Lake


“My favorite moment was when my granddaughter caught a fish. It was her first fish. I saw her smile! She shows me that she never gives up on anything.” – Grandparent of Participant, Weiss Lake
