Greetings, You may not have heard from us in awhile but that does not mean that we have not been up to many amazing things.  I have been sick so the web site has not been updated for awhile.  However, soon our President Suzanne Nash will be posting up a storm letting you know what we have been doing and all the fun things we have planned.  For example, in October 2017 the PPRA donated candy, pumpkins and volunteers to the PRCs Halloween Carnival.  Organized by Emma and the other staff and lifeguards from the PRC.
