Happy birthday, Trefoil Academy, and many more!
Has it been five years already? Wow. Part of me cannot believe how fast time has flown. It feels like only yesterday a group of relative strangers jumped down the rabbit hole and began on this insane journey together.
Over the past five years, so much has changed. Faces have changed. Life has taken some that we were close to down a separate path. However, we remember their time with us fondly and hope that our paths may cross again in the future. Others have returned after being away. We eagerly welcome them back with open arms and a mischievous glint in our eyes. New footsteps have appear beside us over the years. It is hard to remember a time when they were not with us. We have watched with pride as those we once protected now become those that we rely on. Over the past five years, this loosely connected group of acquaintances has become a tight knit group with a very strong sense of identity and purpose. And while we might not always agree with each other, there is never a shadow of a doubt that we have each others' backs particularly when the chips are down. In short, we are family.
Looking back, this camp is not the same entity that it was five years ago nor should it be the same five years hence from now. Our legacy is change. We are constantly adapting to new parameters, improvising new approaching and overcoming previously unforeseen obstacles. We continue to learn new things about ourselves and the world around us. We discover previously hidden talents and readily pounce on the challenges offered before us. This experience continues to redefine and impact our lives in ways we never imagined. One thing remains constant - we are Trefoil Academy.
Trefoil Academy is a place where you get the opportunity to live out your dreams and fulfill others. It is a state of mind where no limits are placed on your creativity and a world of infinite possibilities lays before you just waiting to be explore. It is a feeling of almost immediate and unconditional acceptance for who you truly are. It is the opportunity to be inspired and in turn, inspire others as you leave your mark on the world around you. It is a reminder that our interests are meant to be embraced and that maturity does not mean being serious all the time. It is the chance to be who you are meant to be. Trefoil Academy is magic. Whenever we are together with our family, we are home.
Thank you for your continuous support.
