Festive Finale 2014

To celebrate the inaugural year of the Open Doors Center, we gathered with families and friends for a picnic and play.  In no particular order, here are some highlights.

basketball 2
More Basketball!
Food, including vegan and gluten-free options!
one hula hoop
Hula hooping!
Rebecca and Lucy
Our director, Rebecca Kirk. What looks like small horse behind her is actually her dog, a sweet and gentle Great Pyrenees named Lucy.
two hula hoops
This guy! Yeah, that’s two hula hoops. At one point he did 3, and tried juggling at the same time. It didn’t last long enough to get a picture, but we know what he’ll be working on over the summer.
walking in the park
This looks like an innocent walk in the park, but there’s actually a petty crime process — she stole his hat.
water balloon mischief
Water balloon mischief (check his hands).

If play is how humans learn best, then we were learning all afternoon — but all we cared about was the fun!

We wrapped up the evening with yearbooks, a closing circle, frozen yogurt, and a private screening of Slender:  The Short Film.

Thank you to everyone who was a part of the Open Doors Center’s first year — it has been an amazing journey.  Happy Summer, and we hope to see you at our laid-back, do-what-works-for-you Summer Art Program!
