If you didn't believe it before, believe it now - the 2012 SCA Manchester Program has begun! Kicking off with the first Corps Meeting yesterday we can already see that this season holds great promise! At 4:30pm 27 members started mingling as they played the game "secret fact treasure hunt." Each person disclosed a fact about themselves as they entered the meeting. Then, this list was projected on the board as everyone mingled trying to find who matched which fact. After ten minutes of mingling we circled up and everyone introduced themselves and their fact with the group.
From there Aria led a brief discussion about the broad concept of conservation and how we apply such a broad term to this program. The members split into teams where they were given the opportunity to further discuss then draw what conservation was to them. This activity produced many giggles as all presented their visual representations.
Kevin took the lead explaining our very own mountain man Chris's layering ensemble. Then the members jumped at the chance to put their new layering knowledge to the test. A pile of miscellaneous clothing in the middle of the floor was the center piece of the next activity. A representative from each group was chosen to be the model of proper layering technique. Given only 90 seconds to complete their ensemble, laughs broke across the group as all teams raced to the large pile of clothing in the center of the floor and layer up as fast as they could.
All spots are full for our first Saturday Service Learning Event at Bear Brook State Park. The day will be filled with programs, campfire games, and fun! If you were unable to attend this weeks' Corps Meeting or Saturday Service Learning Event we hope that you will be able to join us at our next Corps Meeting on Wednesday, February 29th at 4:30pm or at our next Saturday Service Learning Event , March 3rd!
