Another excellent week at Macomber Center - trips and cooking and movie shoots and many outside games, inside ones too, all happened in five days that flew by! A number of excellent musical ping pong rounds were played, many games of capture-the-flag took place, and one vigorous kick-the-can encounter (involving neither a can nor kicking that I could see) left the players hot and thirsty! On the one rainy, cool day of the week, we made a fabulous vegetable soup, with many people chopping and cutting up fresh veggies, stirring everything into our large soup pot, then asking every fifteen minutes or so for the next two hours, "Is the soup ready yet??" By noon the answer was "yes!", and we all enjoyed it with fresh bread and butter, for lunch.
We had two visiting members for the week, and they quickly became an active, lively part of our community, playing Settlers and Magic inside, four-square and capture-the-flag outside, acting in the Center movie shoot, and joining a trip to Skyzone for jumping and 3-D dodgeball. A number of our Center members helped with Spring clean-up on campus, loading cut brush and logs into a dump truck to be hauled away to a brush dump.
The week ended with a hiking trip to Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire, on a beautiful Spring day. The hikers reached the summit, climbing the White Dot trail through pine and spruce woods fading to exposed ledge slabs. John Morningstar took this photo at the top! A wonderful time was had by all!
