Happy Anniversary Chicktime!

untitled event-2

Our founder, Lori Rhodes, started Chicktime ten years ago in January.  This month was very special with lots of volunteers, cake, cupcakes, and a special presentation by Lisa Brown.  Special guest Dan from Upbring joined us with his daughter as did the New Life Executive Director, Jacob with his children.  Thank  you to all our volunteers who made the day so wonderful.  Carol put together a lot of great activities for the girls of New Life.  We started in the Gym making pillowcases.  This is a great activity that the girls love.  Marlene and friends unpacked their sewing machines and beautiful fabric and showed the girls how to sew.  Many of the girls reminisced about sewing with their grandma or aunt.  It was touching to hear their memories.  In the Chapel, Jay played the guitar and ukulele for the girls.  They really got into the music, dancing and singing.  Thanks Jay for being a positive and uplifting man in the lives of the girls.  The Life Skills building had  many activities:  napkin folding, card making, lots of cake, cupcakes, and fruit.  It was a great day and a great celebration of this wonderful organization that serves girls at places like New LIfe all across the country.  Thank you Lori for your vision and leadership.
