What an honor is was being honored at the Suffolk County Legislature! Ms April Boitano came and taught us how to be #TickWise through her amazing program withSouthampton Hospital, then we made our own posters and entered the 2nd Annual Tick Poster Contest.. and we won!!!! We got all dressed up and took our SoulGrow Bus to the Suffolk County Legislature in Riverhead and met Suffolk County Legislator Bridget Fleming who does so much for Suffolk County, learned about how government works, and was honored at the ceremony with awards and prizes! It was SUCH a special day we will remember forever-- Thank you so much Legislator Bridget Fleming, April Boitano from TickWise, Southampton Hospital, and Suffolk County for an unforgettable day that filled our hearts with love and pride!!!!
We love getting all painty and expressing ourselves!!!! We made abstract paintings with acrylic that express 1) our mood for the day and the colors of our hearts 2) our favorite part about ourselves 3) why we are grateful for our parents... it was so fun pushing ourselves, pulling what is inside of us and putting it on paper with all the colors and freedom we want! We broke out the face paint then gave presentations explaining our creations. It was so nice to just be creative and connect with ourselves and each other!
What a fun day on the Viking Classic!!! We took an Eco-Tour with Captain Sarah Broadwell and pulled up lobster traps and learned about local water species and wildlife at Shagwong Point, then cruised over to Navy Beach to jump off the boat and swim and play in the water with all kinds of water toys! Welted the anchor, made popcorn, and headed back to the Inlet! Was an amazing day to be on -and in- the water! Thank you so much Captain Sarah and of course the Viking ClassiC!!
