From across the known lands, people came to play, to learn, to create, to participate, to inspire, to look, to teach, to find. A beacon was lit via photons to call forth three special beings. One to serve younger girls and their counselors in this magical, nonprofit wonderland. Another to improve and expand upon over 140 program areas, a “Playstation,” and evening programs. And finally one whose skills and penchants are of a need that both shall know when they know them. Because the magic requires a great preparation, over 400 hours shall be dedicated to such before the children actually arrive. Are you on a quest? Wish to hear more of the story? Over 360 pages may be read here,, or call up to hear more of the oral tale. 530-265-3702. And, of course, everyone lived happily ever after, the beginning.
