Wednesday brought us a lot of helpful hands. We welcomed one of our new jazzercise teachers–Ms. Marbry. TNS members moved for 30 minutes straight! Everyone loves to dance, and loves music–so it was a hit!
Keeping with our Foods from Around the World theme, we invited Robert’s mom, Ms. Jane, to come and introduce us to plantains. She is from Uganda and plantains are grown and prepared there all the time. It seemed that most the members enjoyed trying something new. Thank goodness Stu warned us—even though it LOOKS like a banana, it will NOT taste like a banana!
The day ended with a visiting teacher, Mr. John. He discussed first aid and first aid kits with the members–and fielded lots of questions and comments from our very interested members.
A sincere thank you to all our visitors for being a part of The Next Stop!
Thursday was National Pasta Day–we celebrated by having the members put together two pans of lasagna. They also fixed garlic bread. What a great afternoon “snack” that was!
The members of TNS are responsible for cleaning our rooms. Thursday was the day for the dusters, table cleaners, vaccuumers and moppers to get to work. As usual, job well done!
Michael painted our door signs–and what a difference it makes. Everyone oohed and aahed when he brought them in. We were all so impressed!
Operation Christmas Child–a ministry of Franklin Graham’s–is underway at TNS. We are collecting items to put into Christmas gift shoeboxes for distribution around the world.
