Summer is In Full Swing

Happy Summer Everyone,

I want to wish all my customers, family and friends a Happy Summer.  This is the first time in 12 years that I have had my summer to myself.  Well not exactly, to my self.   Since I no longer direct the Mindful Messages Summer Mentoring Program in West Oakland, I find that I am even more busy with the daily operations and marketing for Ashay by The Bay.  Soon I will make an important announcement about Ashay by the Bay new markets and opportunities so stay tuned.  

And although this is late, I searched and found some resources for summer and after school programs for youth in Oakland.  Several offer African Centered curriculum. All are established and provide great activities that are designed for youth education and enjoyment.
