Easton is an incredible 9 year old boy who happens to have Down Syndrome.  He has great difficulty processing new situations causing him severe anxiety which leads to his withdrawal from his social environment.  As a Navy family, we move every few years forcing Easton to constantly readjust to new environments.  It pains us to watch him struggle to find balance and engage in his new surroundings. A recent family trip to Washington D.C. lead to our encounter with another family that had a service dog.  In just the short time we interacted with them, Easton bonded with the service dog and his social anxieties were lowered allowing him to experience new wonders. 

Volunteers all over the state, from Hampton Roads to Northern Virginia, from the Eastern Shore to the Shenandoah Valley, work by land and boat to give the Bay a massive spring cleaning every year. Elected officials, their staffs, enlisted men and women, scout groups, churches, small businesses, large corporations and thousands of individuals and families will turn out for this year's Clean the Bay Day.Would you like to host a cleanup in your area in 2014?
