Hello Participants

It sounds like you are having an amazing time. As you are coming to the end of this part of the journey, it will be time to reflect on how this has helped you grow. Do you leave the seminar having only had a fabulous week or do you leave knowing that you can take what you have done and make a difference? The choice now becomes yours. Talk to everyone about your experience and it will keep your enthusiasm alive.

I sincerely hope you do not have the same travel challenges to get home.

It is great to see that you all were still able to have the Helen Storrow Seminar given the recent volcanic eruptions. I am learning so much from your daily updates of your sessions. Our Chalet is a wonderful place to be. The staff and volunteers are great. I was there for a Helen Storrow Seminar back in April of 2006 and had a great time. Enjoy the experience, make new friends, share ideas and learn from each other!

Dear Friends at the Helen Storrow Seminar, I can tell from your daily updates that you are having a splendid, and challenging, time together at Our Chalet. Congratulations for carrying on in the face of travel difficulties - and for personally taking up the challenge of a greener planet. Best wishes for Earth Day and for your projects back home after the seminar. Fond regards,

To all the participants enjoy your selves as this experience will leave footprints in your heart. I attended in 2006 and have grown so much as an individual from the experience. To those who sadly didn't make it don't let this stop you seeking further international experiences but let it make you stronger. Best wishes Rachel Williamson Irish Grirl Guides and Helen Storrow Participant 2006

Wishing all participants at the Helen Storrow seminar a wonderful week. I hope that through your daily updates those who were not able to attend due to the air restrictions will feel 'connected to the event' Our Chalet is a very special place and no doubt Helen Storrow was very conscious of the area and the environment when she chose the wonderful location of Our Chalet.
With best wishes for a great event.
Diane Dixon, Our Chalet Foundation
