|Welcome to our Beach Bash and Splash!|
We could not have had more spectacular weather for last Friday's Beach Bash and Splash! Hundreds of kids and hotdogs later, the beach was still buzzing in the hot summer sun, and the Save the Harbor crew had more fun than we could have imagined!
Face painting, fishing, sand-raking, fish printing... you name it, we had it! I think I painted 50 rainbows onto kids on Friday! We had a touch tank under the same tent, and kids could not get enough of Larry the Lobster! Thank goodness for organization, or the sheer volume of activity would have lead to chaos. We planned and we executed- take a look below at what happened when all of the kids splashed into the water at noon!
After a morning of fun and an afternoon splash, it was blue shirts to the rescue! Here you can see Andrea putting ketchup on a hotdog- we had lunch ready to go as soon as the kids were out of the water! Our JPAs carried crates of water around for kids and counselors who had retreated to the shade with their hotdogs and snacks- hydration matters!
|Go, Andrea, go!|
|The captivating Nora Dooley!|
|Patricia Foley, everyone!|
I'll end this with a shout-out to the amazing members of the Save the Harbor staff. Thanks for splashing around in those blue shirts and letting everyone know that the beaches of Boston belong to them. You guys build community, and that matters. Also, Lindsay's shorts tan stands unrivaled.
Until next time, rockstars!
