During the weekend of Aug. 9-10, 2013 the BEEP family ...
... inaugurated the new school space with a homecoming.
... reconnected with old friends and welcomed a few incoming students.
... shared the oral history of BNC and Blandford School w/ Larry Fegel, Mary Jane Dockery, Rick Gillette, Jeff Lende, and BEEPs.
... relived the BEEP experience with felting, archery, nature walks, singing, eating together outside, and teamwork.
... had the most perfect weather we could've imagined.
... enjoyed excellent food and treats from local organic vendors.
... freshened up our wardrobes with new BEEP hoodies, t-shirts and pins.
... had a fascinating lesson in Mars geology and astrobiology from James Ashley.
... enjoyed a 2-hour concert from a half dozen talented BEEPs.
... created a lasting legacy in the rock wall, aka "Lende Terrace"
... got everything cleaned up and put away in record time.
But most of all we felt so grateful to be a part of something wonderful that continues to enrich us our entire lives.
Thank you to everyone who made this event a reality by attending, planning and volunteering. Let's do it again soon!
