Ron has worked with street youth and taught them chess and has served on the board of Oregon Outreach for many years. Linda has worked with those who are incarcerated and has supported Ron through all his efforts.

Ron, Linda and Becky are presented this special painting by Sri Chinmoy called 'Peace Feeds the Children'.
