August Group Event:
Back to School Kick-Off Party
In August we were able to have a Back to School Party thanks to our grant from the Litchfield Area Community Foundation and Southwest Initiative Foundation! We had twenty youth and mentors come for the event, and we all had a lot of fun! We tried some team-building games and activities, along with Catch Phrase and Back to School Pictionary. In groups we also brainstormed back to school tips for having a successful year, had a building competition with marshmallows and spaghetti noodles, and exercised our brains using our 4-H Rube Goldberg machines. Our prizes consisted of three backpacks and lots of great school supplies to help get our LAMP youth prepared for school. We also enjoyed pizza, veggies, and cookies thanks to our grant from the Meeker County Emergency Food Shelf.
