Homeschoolers, Friends, and Family
Monday, November 6 from 9 AM – 11 AM: Join us at Municipal (Langan) Park (4901 Zeigler Blvd) in Mobile as we work on a project to say “Thank You” to our local veterans. We will meet at covered tables 9 and 10 near the water to work on cards and goodie bags for the residents of the William F. Green Veterans Home in Bay Minette. The goodies will be delivered in time for Veterans Day, Nov. 11th.
Come and go as your schedule permits. All ages are welcome. Family and friends, too! We’ll have something for everyone to do. Painting, hand lettering, coloring, cutting, pasting, folding, assembling bags, etc. Wear old clothing to guard against stains from markers, Sharpies, or paint.
What to bring?
1. Writing utensils. Adults & older kids – Black sharpies or ball point pens. Younger kids – Crayons.
2. If you have school or crafting supplies such as glue, scissors, construction paper or stamps, and you can bring them, please do. The more of these we have to share, the more cards we can make.
3. Bags of candy or other small treats like raisins, crackers, or cookies. This is a GREAT opportunity to take advantage of post holiday sales. Please no peanuts, items that tend to melt (like chocolate), or treats with Halloween themed wrappers.
4. Picnic lunch to eat when we are done.
For a sneak peek at some of the card concepts we’ll be working on, see NGCHE’s Art Project Pinterest Board.
If you can’t join us but would like to donate to the project, email us at NorthernGulfCoastHomeEducators@outlook.com.
EDITED TO ADD:
NGCHE has been invited to attend the Veterans Day public celebration at the William F. Green Veterans Home in Bay Minette to pass out cards & goodies, and meet the veterans. See details in invitation below. Please email us if you plan to join the group!
