Summer is still here & we're still living our best lives!
July Recap: Things are HEATING up this Summer!
Making connections with Somerville's Golden Agers
Thank you Somerville Council on Aging and our friends at Ralph and Jenny Center for July 11th Intergenerational Game Day. Some of our Mystic kids had a blast partaking in community-based programming, playing different games with the broader community. The whole time our team could not stop smiling & laughing as we made some new friends in Somerville.
Nature, Nature, Nature, and more Nature!
Thank you, our friends at Farrington Nature Linc, for having us and introducing us to all things nature. We hiked and explored the woods, built the tallest forts, held bunnies, played with the chickens, and walked and fed the cutest goats. Oh, we can't forget the competitive game of water dodgeball that was a crowd pleaser. It was a hot day but worth the sweat.

Happy, Happy Birthday!
