Yesterday, students in our Horizon Summer Camp enjoyed a wonderful drum performance from Biwanko, a non-profit organization that teaches Japanese traditional drumming. One of the Biwanko performers was Yumi Song, a regular CPNJ volunteer! After the performance, students got the chance to trial the drums and received a drum lesson from the Biwanko team. A big thanks to the group for a great experience!
While home on break from college, volunteer Jaclyn Stinziano sought to use her summer for more than basking in the sun. An avid knitter, Jaclyn began teaching two consumers at our Wayne Adult Training Center how to knit on a loom. Our consumers loved knitting and spending time with their new friend. They plan to complete their first garment, a winter hat, in the next few weeks. Special thanks to Jaclyn for donating her time and expertise, and to Kathy Sullivan for donating proper knitting looms and yarn to our Wayne ATC.
