    “I think what you guys do for kids is really cool. The service that you provide for the community is inspirational. You guys rock, and I hope you keep doing what you're doing. I'd sing words of praise for you guys.”

    "As a former police officer I have seen and experienced first hand the troubles that are faced by our children. From family issues to drugs and gangs, our children are challenged every day with making the right choices and decisions. Today's youth do not have to go down this long road alone They have their parents, the community and many fine youth organizations like Lakes Area Youth Service Bureau to help them in making those right choices.

    It takes a community to raise a child, and the fine people at Lakes Area Youth Service Bureau have taken the lead in not letting our children down. We at Captured Memories Photography stand behind the Lakes Area Youth Service Bureau and the extremely important work that they do in supporting our children, and we ask that you please do the same. When the fine professionals at Lakes Area Youth Service Bureau ask for your support, please assist them in any way that you can, and know that your assistance will be helping our youth of today who will be the leaders of tomorrow."
