Our summer brought a welcome breather from COVID self-isolation. Our pontoon boat was out on Lake Champlain frequently. There were activities such as kayaking on Lincoln Pond, paddle boarding, basketball, hiking, a scavenger hunt, painting at the lake, camping, jewelry-making at the camper, swimming, picnics, yoga and nature meditation, and nature photography.
A generous grant money from the Trustees of the NYSARC Trusts once again afforded us wonderful items for a wide-ranging list of activities. Some of these items included Arts & Crafts materials for painting on canvas, for sketching, for watercolors and acrylics, oil pastels, clay sculpture, resin jewelry-making, beading, pie baking, nature photography, and wood burning. Also purchased were supplies for autumn and winter wreath-making, jewelry box-making, needle felting, terrariums, yoga, meditation, drumming circles, music therapy, spa parties, beading, model airplane building, and leatherworking. A glider swing for one of our homes was purchased as were camping supplies and a big screen for outdoor movie events.
