A Cold Start to the Week, but it’s Warm at the Basement!

The 70s has turned to 30s and 20s, hopefully it’s not too long before the nicer weather returns.

In the meantime, we’ve got plenty of stuff that can entertain you at the Basement.

MONDAY: Photography Triptych workshop. Learn how to use photoshop to make your photos into a triptych.

TUESDAY: Turn it Up Tuesday is back with a new music mentor, Nick!

WEDNESDAY: Teen Council! That is if enough people show up. There will be free pizza! We will also begin planning the garden for the summer!

THURSDAY: Video challenge! Be here Thursday to find out more. (and if you borrowed a Flip Cam from the Basement, we need it back)

FRIDAY: Dinner and a movie. Tell us what you would like to eat and what you would like to watch.


Summer is here! Wait a second, isn’t tomorrow the first day of Spring?!

It sure feels like June out there. I don’t think that I’ve ever experienced March weather like this. Monday is the last day of Winter…and it’s in the 70s.

With the weather expected to be nice all week, we’ll have some fun in the sun!

MONDAY: The return of 4:37! Want to know what that is? Be at the Basement at 4:37pm.

TUESDAY: State House Lawn games! 4-5:30.

WEDNESDAY: Teen Council. Free Pizza! Be at the Basement by 4:30pm.

THURSDAY: All new video challenge!

FRIDAY: Dinner and basketball! The NCAA tournament continues this weekend and we will have it on in the background for anyone who wants to sit and watch some of the games.

The picture above is from last year’s garden. We’ll be getting that started soon (we’re going to have a talk about it next Wednesday). You’ll have the opportunity to tell us what you would like us to grow!

Hello, Early Spring!

First off, thank you to everyone who voted for us last week at Town Meeting Day! We really appreciate your support and would not be able to have all of the fun and awesome programming without it!

Speaking of fun and exciting programs, we have a lot of fun and exciting stuff planned this week! And seeing that Spring seems to be coming early this year, maybe we’ll even get to go outside and enjoy it!

MONDAY: It really is gorgeous outside today! Let’s take advantage of it by doing some photography. We’ll have all four cameras ready to go along with a prompt, if you would like one, so you can enjoy the day and capture some early signs of Spring or maybe the last vestiges of Winter.

TUESDAY: We’re going to follow up our Monday photography with some video work. Tuesday we will focus primarily on the editing aspect and creating simple special effects. If you want to be really creative, you could use pictures that you take on Monday and integrate them into videos.

WEDNESDAY: Ping Pong Tournament! There’s been some pretty intense skills being crafted on the Ping Pong table recently. Wednesday will be your chance to use them in some fun competition. We’ll have brackets and a prize for the winner. And if Ping Pong is not your taste, we’re planning on getting some new pool cues and holding a pool tournament in the near future.

THURSDAY: It looks like it will be staying warm all week and we are hoping that, by Thursday, the State House lawn will be dry enough for us to get in some early season Frisbee. If we can get enough people, maybe we could even have a little ultimate.

FRIDAY: The Stir Fry last week was delicious. We’ll have something as tasty, if not tastier, this Friday. You can help us plan dinner, learn some cooking skills, or just eat a good meal. After that, we’re going to have a music jam. After 6pm we’ll be able to turn up the speakers and really rock out!
