Heather Has Four Moms – Jeanette Buck, Director

Don’t Ever Give Up – Amy Billharz, Director
J GRGRY’s “Don’t Ever Give Up” is an encouraging song about not giving up on your dreams though the pursuit may seem overwhelming. In the forest you feel small among the towering old growth trees and lost within the brush, representing all that can hold you back. The shelter is a safe place where creativity can flourish, where you can make things happen with dedication and hard work. May J GRGRY’s “Don’t Ever Give Up” encourage us all to stay strong and keep going during difficult times.
Rated G
