June 29, 2013. A benefit ride for the Wye River Upper School and Camp Lazy Days
LATE BREAKING NEWS:
As we are sure many of you already know, Maryland State Senator E.J. Pipkin has resigned from office effective, August 12, 2013. He and his wife, Alisa have been strong supporters of the Wye River Upper School. In addition to helping the school secure a bond bill ensuring $200,000 in state grant funding for the school's future home at the armory, they also served as this year's Two Rivers Bike Ride Honorary Event Co-Chairs. On June 25th we celebrated the success of this year's ride with a Volunteer Thank You Party. The Senator and Mrs. Pipkin joined us and afterwards enjoyed a tour of the armory. Both were delighted to hear that we are merely $800,000 away from our capital campaign goal and that the Two Rivers Bike Ride 2013 was such as success with more than 300 riders joining us. They truly appreciate the mission of the Wye River Upper School and have been integral in helping us secure brighter futures for our already bright students with learning differences. Please join us in wishing The Pipkins the best in this new chapter in their lives. We hope they will come back and celebrate with us when we dedicate our new home in 2014.

Two Reasons to Ride
Wye River Upper School - Your ride will help a local high school student with a learning difference like dyslexia, ADHD, or Aspergers Syndrome succeed in school.
