HAVE A NEGATIVE OPINION OF MARYVALE, BECAUSE OF WHAT
THEY’VE HEARD, AND NOT FROM WHAT THEY’VE EXPERIENCED. SO OUR JOB IS TO SAY, “HEY, COME
EXPERIENCE MARYVALE LIKE WE HAVE, AND YOU’LL COME TO LOVE IT
LIKE WE DO.”>>MY FIRST MONTH IN OFFICE

SAY TO OUR VILLAGE THAT ALL OF US HAVE THIS GREAT OPPORTUNITY
TO HELP EVERYONE REALIZE WHAT IS AMAZING AROUND US THAT WE CAN
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF, TO LIFT NOT ONLY OUR OWN LIVES, BUT THE
LIVES OF OTHERS AROUND US. SO WE WERE ABLE TO BRING YOUTH
TOGETHER, HAVE THESE GREAT YOUTH OPPORTUNITIES ACROSS ALL OF THE
VILLAGE IN JUNE AND JULY. AND HAVE OUR KIDS REALLY
EXPERIENCE WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A TRUE HERO IN OUR VILLAGE.>>IF PEOPLE WANT TO GET
INVOLVED WITH MRC, IF PARENTS ARE WATCHING THIS RIGHT NOW,
AND THEY WANT THEIR CHILDREN TO BE INVOLVED WITH MRC,
HOW DO THEY DO THAT?>>SO AMAZING THING ABOUT
MARYVALE IS THAT WE HAVE THIS GREAT RESOURCE NOW THAT HELPS
ALL PEOPLE REALLY CONNECT TOGETHER. AND YOU CAN FIND IT AT
