This info comes from Trinity Reformed United Church of Christ. I’m sorry I did not get up an announcement about their Playground Day that they held on June 23rd. They were teaching kids “old-fashioned outdoor games like marbles, jacks, double-dutch jump rope, hula hoop, and a variety of versions of hopscotch.” Then they gave all the equipment away. Does anyone else want to sponsor something like this? I think it sounds quite fun — even for the grownups! I’d be willing to pitch in, too.
Okay, so here’s what’s still on tap…
ACT — Arts and Crafts at Trinity
We are sharing the hobbies we love with anyone who wants to learn! We meet from 2-4:30 pm on Tuesdays all summer. Activities will include watercolors, crocheting, collage, and “Christmas in July” handcrafts. We are supplying all materials so there is no cost. This is for adults and children ten and up. Our weekly free community meal follows at 5 pm. Trinity Reformed United Church of Christ, 60 N. Hanover St., Pottstown, PA 19464, 610-326-2243, email@example.com
Youth Mission Week
Youth from five area churches will be coming together July 29 through August 3 to participate in Youth Mission Week. Youth live at the church during the week and help with simple repairs, landscaping and clean-up for low-income or elderly Pottstown residents, and also at local non-profit agencies. There are still spaces available for youth who want to participate and homeowners or non-profits that would like some help. We can also use adult volunteers (subject to our safe-church policy.) All forms and more information can be found at http://pottstownyouthgroup.weebly.com/. Youth must be entering 6th grade in the fall. There is no cost for the program, but donations are very welcome.
