Anthony’s Blog June 23, 2017
This week in our last Monday morning gathering, we sang our June and Whitsun songs. After that Clara read to us this week’s ‘Calendar of the Soul’ verse. Then Monique announced that our long time coworker Bogdan passed away last Friday night.
After that we had our new feature of ‘Today in History’ with Deepak. He told us that in 1862 slavery was outlawed in the U.S.A. Also in 1846, the very first baseball game was played in New Jersey. In 1888, France gave the Statue of Liberty to New York City as a gift. The statue represents freedom for the immigrants who came to New York City. In 1910, the first Father’s Day was celebrated in Spokane and in 1978, Garfield appeared as a comic strip. After that we looked back at the weather from last week. Also John talked to us about the stars and then everybody shared their weekends.
In our last Thursday morning College, we had a memorial for our long time worker Bodgan. To start off a couple of companions played the bells and then everybody shared stories and memories of a man who was very welcoming to everyone in our community and who spread happiness to all. After that we all did a hallelujah in eurythmy and we practiced our Saint John’s play. During our lunch time, we had a surprise visit from Eric, our former coworker.
Friday morning, we all went to C-Dar Farm and performed the Saint John’s play. After the play we had a picnic in the meadow. Thank you to Ida for baking coconut bread and bringing fruit. While we were eating, we were entertained by Karin’s accordion.
We had a wonderful end to our winter program in Squamish.
