Pack a picnic, snag a skateboard, scoop a scooter, bring a ball...! In addition to the skatepark (boards, blades, scooter, but no bikes), there is a great playground & swings, basketball courts, pavillion, horseshoe pits, and plenty of green grass. Restroom status is unknown at present. Join homeschool buds for a totally casual lunchtime gathering for fun, frolic & friendship. Raindate, Tuesday, May 5th (after Bookchat.)

Community Think & Community Garden! Sats April 25 - May 23

Think GROW! Lynn K. was farsighted enough to reserve a 10x10 plot in the Groton Community Garden for CommunityThinkers to cultivate, tend, harvest, donate -- enjoy!
What a great opportunity to come together on a wonderful project - the earth is our oyster --- ideas?

The plotting has begun behind Groton Services on the north side of Rt. 1 near the power plant (between the Massage School and True Value Hardware). From Courtney at Groton Parks & Rec:

April 25 - More to do! Pick rocks, spread out 35 yards of compost, Lime, & vegetable plant tone, finely roto-till the communal garden plot areas, stake those areas, plant more cool weather crops, and prepare the leased plot areas.

Things we might like to have - gloves, tools, seeds, vegetable plant tone (the more the better). Donations of tools to be kept at the site; shovels, rakes, 2 wheeled wheel barrow, any size stakes, string, hammer, etc.
If anyone is interested in baking cookies, muffins, or bring juice, coffee, water, or fruit. Anything that will keep the energy and spirit of the volunteers up is a great addition to the group.

May 23 - Official planting day

CashFlow Game Reschedule to 4/24

Mike Farnum has requested to move our CashFlow session to Friday, April 24 from 10:30 - noon. If you've not yet been, come check it out. Seasoned pros et al, we hope to see you there!
Homework Reminder: Michael had discussed with the children his idea of setting up a car wash to contribute the money to a local charity. The food bank for instance. Our assignment was to figure out what our start up costs might be. Cost of sponges buckets, soap/ how many cars can be washed etc. A little business plan type of thing. His goal is to execute the idea to have a real life experience of setting up a business and return on investment as well as the experience of giving back to the community/ contributing to charitable cause.
