My husband, Walt Snodgrass, and I moved to Seaside in 1991 and became aware of the SMART program. We volunteered at Seaside Heights. We enjoyed reading to the children for many years, and when my husband died, I continued to do so. I have kept a number of pictures that were taken of us with children we read to, and have enjoyed seeing them grow up and graduate from high school.
Volunteering for SMART is such a great thing to do. I hated to see it stop, and am so glad it started up again. I hope the organization continues to grow and become more successful so that it will be around for a long time.
