The concept of “Empty Bowls” was established in 1990 by a high school art teacher from Michigan. His students crafted ceramic bowls to sell during a fundraising meal where proceeds benefited hungry members of their community.
Guests at the St. Helens “Empty Bowls” event will purchase studnet-made bowls and fill it with cuisine donated by local food merchants and dining establishments. Everyone keeps their bowls as a reminder of hunger in the world.
WARREN – Sande School of Horsemanship, a non-profit horseback-riding program in Warren, is now accepting registrations for their 2014 summer horse camps.
Summer horse camps focus on riding and care-taking of horses, as well as safe handling skills. Groups are kept small to ensure a high instructor-to-student ratio, which allows for a learning-rich and safe environment.
Participants are divided into two age groups. Children ages 4-7 will meet Wednesdays from June 18 through Aug. 27. Morning and afternoon sessions are available (same lesson plan for each). The cost is $280 for eight sessions, and $35 for each additional session. Single sessions also available for $40.
Children ages 8-14 will meet Thursdays from June 19 through Aug. 28. Morning sessions offered only. The cost is $450 for eight sessions. Single sessions are $65.
