Youth Group Gets Underway

June 12, 2014

Story by Tom Gray, Youth Group Leader and Rocket Enthusiast


Tom and RJ hosted the inaugural Youth Group meetup on 12 June.  We had 13 attend and another 4 who signed up but couldn't make it.  It was great to see old friends and several new faces.  The weather was ideal and we launched a two-liter bottle rocket a dozen times...we had to go twice to refill the 'reaction mass' (water) supply.  We also flew kites and tossed frisbees.  


The kids organized themselves and held a spirited discussion about the purpose and future events of the Youth Group.  They plan to do a couple of events a month - canoeing, archery, hiking, movie nights, gaming, and service projects.  The next meetup will be a hike and picnic at Fontenelle Forest on 6 July.  Looking ahead there will be a guided tour of Morrill Hall hosted by Dr. Scott Gardner.  Dr. Gardner gave the Darwin Day lecture for REASON last February "Collecting and Identifying all the Species on our Earth: Progress since Darwin and Wallace".


You'll definitely be hearing more from the Youth Group!
