Life Matters is building a foundation of community as we all raise our voices! Hear the voices of those in the videos that are part of the LM interview series- a few more are posted on the Facebook page, and we're gearing up for the culmination at the Once-In-A-Lifetime Reunion on October 24th. A song began at the first benefit concert for Raising Voices, Raising Roofs- we'll continue to build it up at the Reunion and at the second benefit concert on November 8th; it will all come together during our trip to Tanzania to build houses and strengthen community on the Raising Voices, Raising Roofs Volunteer Adventure in May. If you are interested in joining us on that journey, email the office at .
    Let's Do Something Together!


    This year's PPS Reunion is coming up soon! It will be the biggest one yet- we're inviting ALL past participants to join us in celebrating the joy the outdoors has brought us. Raise your voice in song as an effort to build a community connection with our African friends, contribute to the Life Matters interview series, and enjoy a weekend full of great adventures- paddling at Mendon Ponds, hiking the Lehigh Valley Trail, and an evening of music after the fun-filled reunion lunch. Please email us at if you are planning to attend any or all of the weekend's events!


    We've got some exciting photo expeditions coming up! Look through your lens into the past world of the Incas with the help of Reed Hoffmann on the Peru Photo Explorer in April, 2016. If you prefer the lighting of the midnight sun, join Reed on the Fire & Ice Photo Safari in Iceland in July. Interested in the colorful scenery and culture of Bhutan? The Land of the Dragon is a perfect October, 2016 destination. And there are only a few spaces left on the Antarctic Adventure in 2017, so let us know if you'd like to come! These trips will fill up fast- contact the office for more details!


    It's time for another night of great music in support of a great cause! The Dady Brothers Raising Voices for African Porters Concert on November 8th is promising to be a special event- an intimate concert for only 40 people hosted in a converted church! All donations will go to building homes for our porters in Tanzania. You can help build them on our Raising Voices Raising Roofs trip with Maria Gillard in 2016! Click here to find out more about the project or to make a donation. Check out the Life Matters event to reserve your tickets for November 8th. Space is limited!


    Bob has been a PPS volunteer for many years. We have always enjoyed his smile at office meetings, as he fixes gear, and while he paddles around as our safety boater (among many other things!). Listen as he describes how that smile has made Life Matter for him and those he meets. Bob's career as a teacher and his retirement as a volunteer has Mattered in the Lives of many, and we're so appreciative that he has been a part of ours!
