We are already planning many "old favorite" activities: meditation, yoga, discussion group, kite flying, Ukulele group, scavenger hunt, knitting/sewing circle, bonfire, Sunday morning worship service - but the committee would like everyone, especially folks who are new to FPC, to consider this as a way to share a talent with friends. The workshop or activity could be something more suited to adults, fun for audiences of all ages, tailored toward youth, or just for children. It is your choice. There are a limited number of spots available, so please contact Ann Sadler with your ideas as soon as possible.
If you are willing to help, but need inspiration, we are looking for facilitators for any of the following activities:
- Discussion group
- Kite flying
- Acoustic jam
- Ukulele group
- Scavenger hunt
- Bike ride
- Knitting/sewing circle
- Pickup Choir
- Poetry writing for beginners
- Art/craft for adults/kids
- Talent Show (liaise with the Lynn church - we have contact info) ??
- Beach/nature walk
- Board games
- Bonfire with Smores
Please contact Ann Sadler at email@example.com to volunteer, or if you have any questions or suggestions.
