July In review

  On July mornings we learned about nutrition with Vince Ramirez, kayaked and canoed on Silver Lake, had fitness classes with Bari, went riding at Moonrise Farm, did crafts with Kitty, went to slip and slide day at the Hurd's house and it was amazing! We went to Wellwood Farms and picked Strawberries, we had a art class with Lolly and Bonnie, we went Bowling at Maple Lanes, and went to the Thompson Senior Center for Story Telling with Jools.

Mid-day we went to the Frates Pond, we had puppetry class with Angel, art with Fiona, farm programs at Billings Farm, photography with Holly and drumming with Ted.

In the afternoons we had yoga class, we sang with Jack Snyder and Kerry Rosenthal, we did art with Laura, cooked with Sarah, and played golf at Woodsotck Country Club.  Tomorrow at 3PM we have two very special guest coming to Zack's Place for a book reading!

We also went to the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center and took a great cruise of Squam Lake.

We read books with Pam, Ron, Diane and Bettyanne.

Our pictures are really great so be sure to scroll down!

Every summer we get an amazing amount of volunteers. We have our steady interns that come each summer during school break and help us out with whatever. They are amazing! This summer we have Sam Matel, Graham and Andrew Jameson, Ruth Bollinger, Cam Cobey and Oscar Montano. These interns are essential to our programs. Another unusual group of volunteers arrived at our doorstep last week. It was an entire family.

Late last winter my husband and I were unloading from an event on a Sunday and a family walked by. They came over to us and asked what Zack's Place was. We told them about our center and gave them a tour. About a week later I received a letter in the mail asking if they could possibly volunteer for a week in the summer and it was accompanied by a generous donation. We connected and last week was decided upon. They rented a house and sure enough, Monday-Friday the entire family volunteered all day. They got to know our whole group including staff, volunteers and participants and they were a tremendous help. All of us from ZP, Board, Staff, Participants and families are grateful for their generous spirit and their sincere friendship.
