On September 19th we started a new volunteer program at The Saybrook at Haddam. Student cleaned some spaces and other helped out in the dining room/kitchen. Lots to do!
We met up with another 18-21 Program. We went on a hike, to the Nature Center, and had a picnic on the beach. After the picnic we collected shells and enjoyed the sunshine.
Miniature Golf was a blast! On September 1st. Students loved being by the water and having a great time. We also celebrated a friends birthday.
Wouldn't you know? The CT River Ferry had a broken part. We enjoyed looking across the CT River with binoculars and then had a nice lunch a Moravelas pizza in Chester. Great day for our last outing! Too bad about the ferry but we will try again in the fall.
Mini-golf was cancelled today due to rain. Students had lunch and decided to watch Aladdin here.
Holiday weekend start up! We had a great time at Halfingers Farm. It was our last volunteer experience of the year. We ended it with lemonade and donut holes. After lunch we went to Sheldon Park where the kids enjoyed the sunshine.
Students went to stretch and enjoyed some yoga. They gave Miss Alicia a plant and card! They also went to clean Youth and Family Services and the library in the afternoon.
The Peabody was a fun time. Students saw all kinds of fun things like dinosaurs, mummies, animals, and artifacts.
It was a blustery and chilly day! We decided to hike at Chatfield Hollow and have lunch instead of going to the beach. We walked over 3 miles, had a picnic lunch, and flew a kite. We saw some familiar faces and some friendly doggies while we were there! Great day!
Today we went with the Oak Hill School to get some vegetables and flowers for our garden. Students bought tomatoes, lettuce, onion, pepper, swiss chard, and marigolds. It was a great time. We came back and turned over the soil and put new dirt down.
