Summer for SCLA

Happy Summer SCLAers!

Hope you are enjoying some time off with family and friends.  I also hope you are gearing up for a great year of Leadership Academy and have spent some time this summer volunteering.  Are you keeping track of your hours on the site 100Squared?  Its a great place full of opportunities and a way for you to track your efforts.  Go to  and check it out!  Thanks to Senior Brian Hardy for getting this up and running.

A few reminders of summer events-

SCLA is excited to host a great leadership evening on Tuesday, July 17th 6-8pm and would like to invite you to attend! 

The group Health and Ed 4 Nepal is based out of Longmont and along with this group we  are excited to welcome Jaget Lama to Longmont to share with us information on the building of the school, the health clinic and the women's center.  Jaget is an experienced trekking guide and professional musician.    Jaget is also working with the Mountain Leadership Group who is producing a feature length documentary on life in the village of Kumari, Nepal, and their desire to bring health care and education to this village.

This will be a great evening of traditional Nepalese food, information, music and fun.
