Everyone was invited to listen to a talk about Scuba Diving by one of our locals, whose whole family scuba dives.

The 5 & under kids also made starfish and a paper fish bowl

the 6-11 year old kids made made marshmallow pops, a star box and pirate swords.

The teens had a cupcake war, decorated bottles and put lights in them and made cork boats.

The adults have painted a sea horse, made a couple of small “Ocean’ themed signs, metal sea shells and made cedar bird feeders.

July 6th the teens and 6-11 year olds made water bottle rockets. The 5 and under made toilet paper tube fish.
