One of their favorite days
together started at Ketchikan's Blueberry Arts Festival when
"Big Sister" Sara and "Little Sister" Kayla
walked around for hours, participating in all its activities.
Kayla thoroughly enjoyed the pie-eating contest, getting all
messy with her friends. Then they walked all over town and ended
up going to the movies.

Sara and Kayla enjoy doing just about anything. Fashion-conscious Kayla got a kick out of the "Out of Line" Wearable Art and Runway Fashion Show. Such community-supported events in Ketchikan plus the spontaneous ones Sara and Kayla dream up become the vehicles that help create their healthy one-on-one Big/Little relationship
and the mentoring goes on.
The "Big's" bonus? Mentor Sara receives some extra magic in her life: "Since I'm relatively new to Ketchikan, it's nice to have a great new friend like Kayla in my life. I'm lucky that we are matched! I enjoy spending time with Kayla, who is a very sweet and caring person. We have a great time together! Each time we see each other, I like to hear about how things are going and improving for her."
