Calming Jar Activity-June 15th

With busy season coming up, we thought it might be nice to have a DIY activity that promotes relaxation.

The HAWK ladies will be providing all the materials that go into the container, so we just need YOU to bring the container you want as your calming jar.

Some container ideas are:

Mason jars

Old Voss bottles

Water bottles

Plastic paint bottles (like those Kid Crayola paints)

Clear food jars

If you are interested in participating, please sign up in the W Drive--> HAWK folder for this event, so we know how much materials to get.

Vegetable Exchange

If your garden is overflowing with fruits and veggies and you do not know what to do with them/do not have space to store them; we will be planning a veggie swap closer to harvest season.

We have a sheet in the break-room that you can fill out to share what veggies you will be bringing to the office closer to harvest time. This will give everyone an idea of what will be expected.

Feel free to bring in your overflow veggies to swap or donate to co-workers.
