April 26, 2017 - Join us at Sports Iowa with Friendship Ark and Mainstream Living
YLS is partnering Friendship Ark's Day Hab group and Mainstream Living for a fun activity at Sports Iowa. The day hab attendees will arrive at Sports Iowa and participate in various activities, aided by members of the YLS (comfortable shoes encouraged). This activity will be a great way to network with the folks from Friendship Ark and Mainstream and encourage healthy lifestyles.
Wednesday, April 26th from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
Location: Sports Iowa (2176 232nd Lane, Ames, IA 50014)
Lunch will be provided.
YLS has partnered with Ames Parks and Rec, UWSC, Raising Readers in Story County (RRSC) to install a Born Learning Trail at Greenbriar Park on S 16th Street (just west of Ames Christian School). A Little Free Library (LFL) will be installed at the park as well-and will need to be painted and decorated by YLS and their families. Luckily for us, Ames Parks and Rec will already have installed the poles and signs for the trail and installed the LFL, so all we need to do is paint the sidewalks (there are stencils) and paint the LFL and fill it with books. If you have been to Brookside Park in the last year, you have seen the first Born Learning Trail.
Please arrive at Greenbriar Park at 9am on Saturday, April 22 (April 29 is the rain date) in clothes you don't mind getting paint on. This is a family friendly volunteer activity. Donuts, coffee and orange juice will be provided. Depending on the number of volunteers, this will probably be a 1-2 hour time commitment.
