Wanted to let you know that the fun and heartwarming Valentine's Dance/Empty Bowl Project is coming up this Saturday, February 25th, from 1-3:30pm. We are inviting the Down Syndrome Association of the North Bay back for a second time to this event, as the first event, three years ago, was such a hit. As a result, they have a special invite for us they'll be announcing at our event on the 25th!
The event will start with a soup/mac n' cheese lunch in a handmade ceramic bowl! These bowls plus lunch and admission to the dance cost a total of $20.
We need a few volunteers to make/buy lunch; please email me if you can help!!
About half of the bowls have been hand "thrown" by our children on a potter's wheel over the past few weeks. The other half will be purchased as "bisqueware" so that every student (and even a few parents) have the opportunity to "glaze" (paint) a bowl!
The fee is being raised as a fundraiser for the special needs community that we share a campus with here at VCS. One idea is to use the funds to by equipment for a shared obstacle course that our kids can use when they go to "play" together with "Room 11."
The Valentine's dance will begin roughly around 1:45pm and last till 3pm. If you prefer to come for just the dance the cost is $5, again to be given towards this community service event.
This is a ❤️-felt, and belly-satisfying event; we hope you all join us!
