So much has happened at Macomber Center over these past cold weeks. We have enjoyed many return trips to Wachusett Mountain, where skiing and snowboarding happen on a weekly basis. There was excellent sledding on our campus for a few weeks, before the rain melted the snow away, leaving icy, bare ground in its place. Skating at Loring Arena is a weekly occurrence, and recently a large group of our members paid a visit to the new Sky Zone trampoline park in Westborough, and jumped for an hour! Just before our winter break, seven kids completed the first level of the tae kwon do practice they have been learning since October.
There has been much music-making at Macomber, with saxophones, harmonicas, guitars and piano all being practiced on many days. Ongoing biology and latin interests have persisted, and different levels of math have been explored.
We had a wonderfully successful Movie Premier Night, with dinner served before the showing of the latest movie produced at Macomber Center - "It Happened On Horrible Hill", a fictional tale loosely based on Framingham history and its connection to the Salem Witch trials of 1692. The film featured Macomber Center kids - over 80 people came to our event, and a fabulous time was had by all! We are looking forward to our next film, already being produced!
