February 27, 2020. Easton Rotarian Lori Metz hosted our meeting today at the Easton YMCA. After enjoying nutritional, plant-based lunch we received a report from Sarah Wassel on the use of our grant for family programming. A series of events provided over 400 children and families with fun activities focused on families spending quality time together. These included: Family Night at Centennial Park, National Night Out, Summer Wrap Up Party at Vanderveer Park, Welcoming Week at the YMCA, Family Glow Night (a pool activity), Family Gingerbread House Night, and several Flick and Floats (dinner followed by a movie poolside).
Next Jennifer Clark led us in a game of Nutrition Jeopardy. We learned many interesting facts about diet, exercise, and nutrition. Jen uses this technique as a fun and engaging way to teach nutrition to children and families at the Y.
