The UUCW RE Committee invites you and your family to walk the church grounds on a self-guided Family Story Hike! Spend a morning, afternoon, or evening at church, experiencing the wonders of the season!
In December 2020, Middle School Youth and adult volunteers install posts along a path. Dave Cicero instructs the youth where to place the posts.
The start of the Family Story Hike is positioned at UUCW’s West Entrance. A treasure box holds story guides and treats! Ezra Jack Keats’ beloved story “The Snowy Day” will be on display until February 5th. A new story will be posted later in February.
Each station reveals a story of winter discovery and encourages its readers to do seasonal activities. UUCW Youth Hank brings a warm beverage to keep the chill away. Kathy Lake’s granddaughter demonstrates how to make a snow angel.
“My granddaughter really enjoyed the Snowy Day walk. Thanks for setting it up.”
The Story Hike is for the young and young-at-heart. Members Kathy and Jerry Kashmerick get out for a frosty walk. Elmbrook Preschool children bundle up before starting their outdoor storytime.
“We really enjoyed the story hike on our lunch break today…just what we both needed! Thank you so much for all the ways to connect with each other and a larger community!”
