Wow! We received a donation of gorgeous cut flowers from @fullmoonfarmnh to create floral arrangements! We worked together to learn how to create an appealing bouquet and then everyone brought theirs home! A huge thank you to Jen and Kevin French for this educational and beautiful activity!

WE HAVE A NEW GAG PIT! Since we were introduced to gaga ball about five years ago, it’s been a staple in our programs here at the KYC! We started with a pit we built here at the KYC in our woodworking program. However, we upgraded this last week to a bigger and more stable Gaga Ball pit! We love this game and are excited to use this new addition to our outdoor space!
The KYC adopted a garden bed at the Wolfeboro Community Garden, where fresh produce is grown for the Life Ministries Food Pantry. We are so excited for this first-time experience and got to work on it this week! Shelly treated us to snacks; veggies to represent the fresh food we will be harvesting soon!
The biggest, most heartfelt thanks to Piscataqua Landscaping and Tree Service for such a great career exploration field trip! Rob, Kelly, and Paula treated the group to refreshments, a wonderful tour, questions and answers, inspiration, and a hands-on activity! We learned how to create a beautiful container display and got to take them home to enjoy all summer. We can’t thank you enough for your warmth and hospitality!
We held a Team Talent Night last week! Teams were given a list of “talents” to present and about 30 minutes to prepare. Then, we held the Talent Show! It was funny, heartfelt, and so creative! What a great evening with great teens!
Last week KYC volunteer Donna began a series of mini-lessons with our students. “How Your Brain Works; Techniques for Managing Stress,” will give our teens guidance and specific ways to handle everyday stressors. We can’t wait to learn more! Thank you, Donna!
We had a great night at the @wolfeboro.public.library last night! Dinner and movie for our group of almost 30! Thank you to the library for the hospitality and letting us enjoy a screening of The Princess Bride!
Yesterday we played “What Do You Meme?” which was hilarious! We also started some woodworking projects and did a baking activity with Diane. Students who participated were able to bring home a warm apple crisp to enjoy with their families. Cheffing-It-Up is a group favorite and it’s always exciting when we can offer it!
