This week in our Monday morning circle, Ruth T. made two announcements. The first announcement was that on Tuesday evening we are going to have our yearly pumpkin carving party. We are going to carve 100 pumpkins so bring your own pumpkin and an apron. The last announcement was that we will be dressing up as dwarfs and goblins. We will be celebrating Halloween on the mosaic.
On Monday, Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, we broke in to our eurythmy, painting, clay, novel and singing groups.
In our Thursday morning College, Patricia showed us a map of Vancouver that was made by the Art studio group. We reviewed what we learned in last Thursday’s College. We talked about the First Nations people and we saw on the map where they lived. We reviewed the explorers that came from Spain and Great Britain like Jose Maria Narvaez , George Vancouver, Captain Cook and Simon Fraser. Then using the map we found and named the following places: Stanley Park, Fraser River, Musqueam, Whoi-Whoi, Coal Harbour, English Bay, Spanish Banks, Hastings Mill, Moodyville, Burrard Inlet, Capilano Bridge, Port Moody, Richmond, Deep Cove and Delta. We also reviewed the stories about Gassy Jack, how Gastown got its name, Mr. Moody and his mill and Mr. Hastings and how Hastings Street was named. Then Bogdan talked to us about salmon.
After a short break Lorna’s Bell choir practiced their bell playing for the fairy tale.
On Friday afternoon, one group went swimming and another group stayed at Circle Hall and practiced the fairy tale.
A group went downtown after the Centre to play some of the fairy tale music for the closing of the Health & Wellbeing in Children, Youth, and Adults with Developmental Disabilities Conference. It was a great success!
