Dear Friends of MEC!
Just a friendly update on what is happening with us.
We have been having so much fun in Club MEC, making good foods, and planting seeds to sell at our May Fundraiser. We are joining forces with the Redline Grill, and the Cinco De Wino event on May 4th from 11-4PM. We will be occupying the downtown store & front porch to sell our plant starts.
Did you see us on the news!?! You can find that clip here: http://krcrtv.com/news/shasta-county/manton-residents-fight-for-new-charter-school-after-only-school-gets-shut-down
This week we will be making homemade pasta, and planting more seeds. We have started a unit on housing, different types of housing, and structures that people live in around the world. We will eventually (when the sun comes back) have our own little town outside called "Roxaboxen" (see book here: ) complete with its own currency. :)
Mark your calendars, April 11th @6PM, the Antelope Elementary School District will be voting on whether to lease the school campus to our community or sell it. Once we hear the decision then we can move forward with our plans. We have been ruminating on having community potlucks and kick ball tournaments on the baseball field, bike races on the track, Manton AGventure Field Days for Public Schools, Farm to Fork dinners under the pines, etc....
We have submitted a grant to the Shasta Regional Community Foundation for an art & music enrichment program we plan to roll out in August. It will feature Meet the Masters art curriculum and Cajun Box Drum rhythm class.
Do you have a good idea?
Do you want to teach our kiddos some skill?
Please don't hesitate to contact us! We have started planning the 19/20 Club MEC year. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
