Thanks for the "Cheers" Franz. As much as we would like to have you there, it is still more important that the kids are there. Thus, the event must be on a school day. :thumbup:

Everything is ready for a nice ride to the school. I hope the weather holds out, but we will go rain or shine. :thumbup:

There are approximately 70 children anxiously awaiting our arrival. I visited the school yesterday and saw some of our completed projects. New paving stones were installed in the playground area, and all the equipment re-painted. New mosquito screens and aluminum screen doors have been installed in the classroom area. The school principal has been trying to get this done for some time but could not get funding from the school district or other sources. This was all funded by CMTR donations.

We strive to contribute to areas in and around Chiang Mai when possible and not only minority ethnic groups. Although in a rural area, don't expect the school to look like some of our hill tribe outings. Even though the school was reported to us as "one of the two poorest" in the District 4 Hang Dong/Mae Wang areas, it is really in pretty good nik. They have some great programs for the children already in place which is a credit to their staff. HOWEVER; the children come from very poor families, we are told. They will be receiving new CMTR backpacks/book bags, and of course toys, sports equipment and learning materials.

We have around 10+ bikes confirmed, and we would like to see more. See you tomorrow!
