Joy Ahearn asks Ryan Allen, Youth Services Director, about our upcoming work at the Y.

We are excited to be getting ready for a morning of service and afternoon of celebration at the YMCA Camp Tricklin' Falls in East Kingston, NH. All New Hope families are invited and encouraged to participate in this great day! We have been successful in our fundraising, and now the work we are doing at the camp will allow the Y to focus their attention on summer programming, as well as their own scholarship fund for campers. We have been thrilled by this win-win partnership. 

Plan on arriving between 8:30 and 8:45, and we will begin working at 9:00. Everyone, please bring:

  • sunscreen and bug spray
  • long pants and work shoes
  • non-work clothes to change into (shorts, etc.)
  • work gloves (even if you aren't signed up to clear brush, everyone needs to be flexible on the day and willing to switch around)

You may also bring other things depending on your job. An exciting part of serving at the Y is that we will all be on the same team, and everyone will need to bring an attitude of servanthood -- you may sign up for a particular job, but if you finish and there is other work to do, we'll ask you to pitch in! 

And then we celebrate!

Between 11:30-noon, we will wrap up the morning service and transition to the celebration picnic. New Hope families and alumni are all invited the picnic, even if you cannot serve in the morning. Come celebrate not only the success of the Servathon, but our whole year together! Be in touch with Mrs. Ahearn about what you can bring for the potluck.
