I had a great time with Ray Smith and his team of volunteers, as well as the more than 70 youth they serve at The Garage in Gilman. It is a great place for kids to come, play games and socialize with each other under adult supervision. A few months ago I pledged to you that I would not keep a salary increase which was given to state legislators this year, and so this month I donated my raise to The Garage to support their good work. It appears that a chunk of the donation went to pay for the kids’ pizza the night I was there! It was a fun visit and I love their enthusiasm.
