To Mrs. Amanda Brown and the committee - you are such a blessing to Our Lady of Good Counsel School. As volunteers and coordinators on this project your efforts are, and were, invaluable. On behalf of Fr. Damian and the OLGC staff, we thank you so much for your great volunteer spirit, the kindness you showed to families and guests, and all of your beautiful, energetic leadership styles. We realize that sometimes it may feel like a thankless job. But, we want you to know just how much we appreciate all the work you’ve done behind the scenes to make such a great thing happen.
