June 2015

This month we had our second annual Family Dance, Science and Nature Club took a tour of the Missouri Wildflowers Nursery, and Art Club made dreamcatchers. Members who ordered new t-shirts also got them.

Freeze dance.
On June 7, six of our families--26 persons--danced the afternoon away. We also played musical chairs; Red Light, Green Light; and Simon Says; and did freeze dancing. Snacks were prepared and shared and everyone, young and old, got to hang out with their friends.

Looking for salamanders at the Missouri Wildflowers Nursery.
On June 10, the Science and Nature Club met at the Missouri Wildflowers Nursery. There was a guided tour of the nursery where we learned what the nursery does, what plants it grows, and why those plants are important for Missouri's ecosystem. Two of the highlights of the tour were the "seed room" and looking for salamanders among duckweed and other aquatic plants.
Original dream catchers.

On June 18, the Art Club met at the library to make dream catchers. After a discussion on the origin of  dream catchers, the ten attendees made their own out of small paper plates, yarn, beads, and feathers.

and the back.
This year's t-shirts were ordered in white, black, honey, and kelly green. Kelly green was, by far, the most popular. The shirts feature our group's logo on the front and its acronym on the back.
