Group Singing

10:00 – 11:30   Intergenerational Activity led by Owen Coursinimage2

Description:  We are asked to think of something we want to increase in the world, and something we want to let go of.  We will write or draw our ideas onto either side of soft clay doves.  We will then hang the doves on tree branches where the clay (and our intentions) will return to the earth.
