Gazing ahead- Pleasant Grove staff are working on organizing some star gazing events for 2016. Last year, we hosted the N.C. Science Festival’s Annual Stargazing Party and it sparked interest in additional star parties. The clear skies and low light pollution of rural Alamance County make it a great place to learn about the stars. Stay tuned for more information about these events!
-The annual Summer Camp Expo will again be held in March. The public expo features information about local summer activity options including full summer, weekly, half day, sports, arts & tutoring, specialty programs, and children’s health programs; as well as vendors, door prizes, games, and crafts. Stay tuned to the website for more information.
–Great American Campout! Join friends and family at Pleasant Grove in June for a night of family-friend camping. In celebration of the Great American Campout, the PG fields will be set up to host tents, campfires, and a night of camping fun. We are inviting local Scout troops to attend and help novice campers learn more about how to start a campfire, and other essential camping basics. The event will be friendly to new and experienced campers alike.
–Pleasant Grove Summer Camp will be held during the summer months.
-Pleasant Grove will again host the annual Santa’s Workshop in December, during which volunteers and the community work on handmade Christmas gifts for donation to local assisted living facilities. Each year, Santa’s Workshop makes handcrafted Christmas gifts that go out to over 675 local senior residents and goody bags that go to approximately 500 caretakers. There are new crafts each year, snacks, a special “Elf Yourself” photo station, and an opportunity for photos with Santa!
