Here is what our buddies Kristin & Brooke have to say about being a part of Beach Buddies:

 

 

What Beach Buddies means to me is seeing happy faces at our Beach Buddies events with joy, and everyone loves to have fun. That’s what it means to me. For me is the Heart of Love being there, being involved is very special to me. Seeing my best friends there and new friends too. 

Another thing about Beach Buddies is that it makes me happy to have people around me, people that want to talk to me and meet me at every event. It’s all about having fun, being happy, knowing I belong there.

 

Kristin Nichols, Lincoln City 

 

What beach buddies means to me … Friends make life more fun! I enjoy  hanging out with my Best friend awesome Amy and meeting new friends. My life is full of happiness and I love when other buddies hang out with me and Amy,  because as I said, Friends make life more fun.
