Dear Senator Smith:

Thank you for taking the time to tour our [Bright Lights Afterschool Program] during your recent district working session The youth, parents and program staff enjoyed meeting you and sharing our program with you. I hope your tour helped you realize how much our community values our program. As we discussed, and as I have witnessed firsthand, afterschool programs keep kids safe, increase academic achievement and help working families.

I look forward to meeting with you again to further discuss the ways in which we can work together to ensure that afterschool programs stay open and are available to more children in our state.
