ACTIVITIES WE ENJOYED THIS WEEK

ICEBREAKERS – Randy came up with the icebreaker questions this week. As usual, we had a great deal of fun learning new things about each other. 

LEARNING AND DISCUSSION ~ This week we focused on National Volunteer Day, Earth Day and National Jelly Belly Day!  In LWF, we had fun sharing and engaging about the importance of volunteering and why it is important.  During AC, we celebrated Earth Day and shared about the importance of taking care of Mother Earth. What can we do to help preserve our planet?  https://youtu.be/Yomf5pBN8dY
