Mt Washington Cog Railway
August 4, 2022
Despite predicted temperatures approaching triple digits, those who traveled to Mt. Washington on August 4 reported a fun and memorable trip. While riding the cog railway that takes visitors to the summit of the Northeast’s tallest mountain, we learned of the interesting history of the cog railway, saw brave hikers who took on the challenge of reaching the 65-degree summit, had a lovely time taking in all the views, and generally enjoyed one another’s company. What an incredibly beautiful day it was. If you’re interested in riding the cog railway during fall foliage season, we already have a trip planned for October 6. Call or drop a line to Rusty, and he’ll take care of getting your ticket: 603-428-3077 / email@example.com
Bike Safety Training With Officer Bossi
July 26, 2022
Officer Bossi of the Henniker Police Department stopped by White Birch Center on Wednesday morning to talk with our Kickstart classroom about the importance of bicycle safety. Everyone met under the White Birch tent where she and the students engaged with one another about the importance of knowing and following the rules of the road, the inherent dangers involved with riding a bicycle at night, helmet safety, and more.
Eager to drop the talk and start the action, the students firmly tightened their helmets, ready to prove they could demonstrate new levels of personal responsibility while exercising the newfound safety precautions.
Using a chalk-drawn rendition of a street equipped with stop signs, twists and turns, Officer Bossi helped to guide each child individually through various challenges. Riding between the chalk lines and fervently following the traffic laws, the class loved navigating the “road” and had so much fun riding with all their classmates through their virtual White Birch parking lot track.
Active Living Candle Bowling Excursion
July 22, 2022
Yesterday, twelve aspiring bowling professionals had a great time at Boutwell’s Bowling Center in Concord. While all of our outings are primarily about the fun factor, June Fitzpatrick, pictured here, walked away with the highest score of the day. We also enjoyed a delicious lunch at Olive Garden before heading back to Henniker.
If you’d like to be included in the next bowling excursion, you’re in luck! There’s one coming up on Thursday, August 18. The cost is $11.50 for two games and shoe rental. There is a suggested donation of $5 to help cover the costs associated with the White Birch Bus. Lunch at Longhorn Steakhouse is at your own expense. You can register by placing your name on the bowling roster in the Welcome Room or you can contact Rusty Gage at firstname.lastname@example.org and / or 603-428-3077.
