On June 22nd, Bridges went Roller Skating at the CRC Events Center in Osage.
Lacey and I enjoyed connecting with many of our mentors, mentees, and families as well as meeting new people. We were also excited that a few members of the River City Dames of Anarchy Roller Derby team skated with us.
This event would not have been possible without the support of our community. Thank you to all who attended, the advisory board members, Payless Foods, the individuals who donated ice cream, postage for invitations, and servingware, Pepsi Beverages Company in Mason City for donating soda and water, Runde Graphics in Riceville for donating flyers, the staff at the CRC Events Center, and all who showed up to participate and help kids put on their skates and serve root beer floats.
Currently, we’re finalizing details for a few summer educational events covering topics like cyberbulling and substance abuse. We’re also coordinating an interactive event for mentors, mentees & families of mentees focusing on health, beauty, hygiene, manners healthy meal planning on July 28th, 5-7 p.m.
More details will be announced soon. Thank you for being a part of Bridges!
