Dear PALS families and friends,
This past weekend in the Big Apple was one full of laughter, sight-seeing, and PALS love! Our names are Sarah Miller and Jake Taylor and we were the adventure leaders for New York City. We want to thank everyone in the PALS family for making this weekend so memorable, without you it would not have happened! We began our weekend at Home2suites in Rahway, NJ. We had an Ugly Holiday Sweater party filled with karaoke, photo booth pictures, and fun games! After we got to know each other a little better, we had dinner catered by Chick-fil-a. We rested up Friday night for a jam packed day in the city on Saturday! We began Saturday with breakfast at the hotel and headed to the train station. We took the train to New York Penn Station and began our adventure in the city! We went to Bryant Park and enjoyed lunch and treats there. We walked to Rockefeller Center to experience the most famous tree! We then walked to the unforgettable broadway show, Spongebob Squarepants. Campers and counselors enjoyed dancing and singing along to the show and a couple of us even met a celebrity! We concluded our day in the city by walking through Times Square and hopping on the train back to Rahway. We enjoyed dinner at T. G. I. Friday’s and were more than ready for bed! Sunday was the day we had to say goodbye to an amazing weekend but not before crafts and a scavenger hunt at our PALS staff member, Julia’s house. Our weekend in the Big Apple was so special and got everyone in the holiday spirit! Thank you to everyone who made it possible!
