In March we did ski lessons for a couple of the boys that had never skied before. Creating new excitement, a few bumps and lots of laughs.
Most of the HFP group said they had never been to a live theatre presentation. So we fixed that. Golden's Miner's Playhouse hosted us to their holiday play called Greetings. The kids got to experience a fun and complicated play where a family celebrating Christmas is visited by an alien. Lots of laughs and good discussion followed. We will follow this up with a day that the kids get to perform their own play in the up coming months. A big Thank You to the Golden Miner's Playhouse and especially Rick Bernstein!
Every year we seek to find a project that allows us to give back to our community in a meaningful way. Teaching kids to be thankful for what we have - even if it is not much - is tremendous for their souls. The kids love the concept of helping others even when they are the ones that may need the help. Taking the focus off of ourselves is an important habit to get into and the kids do this with much joy and compassion. Today's event was in conjunction with the Healing Tree and Cops Fighting Cancer. Both are charities trying to make a difference in the world and both enjoyed partnering with 16 of our youth for the event. The kids decorated about 75 Christmas trees to be delivered to kids in the hospital during the Christmas season. The trees are meant to bring smiles and encouragement.
in making the weekend a success!
We couldn't hike due to the Colorado fires so bowling took the place of our planned event. As we expected, it was a blast and everyone pretty much stunk at bowling. But the kids want to do it again! Thanks to Westminster Brunswick!
