Finally the first few days of Spring warmth arrived at Macomber this week - there was lots of outside activity as a result! The basketball games picked up, four square and frisbee were played, scooters and rip-sticks ridden once more.
Nicole Gareau brought her extensive knowledge of jewelry-making to the kids, and a number of really beautiful necklaces were made from an extensive collection of beads donated to the Center earlier this year. Nicole also provided a laptop loaded with a teach-yourself-to-type program, and five kids are now on their way to typing proficiency, practicing daily (or almost)!
Final editing work occurred on one of the movies under production here, and plans for wrapping up shooting of the second film were put in place. We are anticipating an exciting movie premier night in the near future!
Everyone enjoyed a make-your-own sub sandwich for lunch one day this week, and afterwards joined in the Free Cone Day festivities at Ben and Jerry's in Framingham. The Center also made another trip to the Rock Climbing gym in Worcester, where greater heights are scaled with each visit!
We held a very successful Open House one afternoon, hosting at least ten new families, who had the opportunity to take advantage of our beautiful site, in lovely weather. Many new contacts were made between kids, and parents were able to see us in action. A good time was had by all!
