With winter in full effect, the WBC Kickstart classroom will soon be participating in the Pats Peak Learn to Ski and Ride Program!
The class will meet, have breakfast, and get ready at White Birch, and then take the bus over to Pats Peak. The program consists of hour long lessons beginning Jan. 4, 2022 and will continue every Tuesday until Feb. 1st.
We are excited to engage in a program that provides a fun way for students to learn a new winter sport. Through the process of learning how to ski, students strengthen their problem solving skills, social skills, as well as boost their confidence overall.
Every year on the week before Halloween, the Henniker Family Dentistry has a Halloween Spirit Week to celebrate the holiday and get more involved within the Henniker Community. Thursday during Spirit Week is the Halloween Parade and the dentistry invited everyone at White Birch to participate. They also generously offered to donate $10.00 to our organization for every staff member and student that dresses up and takes part.
The morning parade began at the White Birch Center where the smiling faces and colorful costumes of all the students made their way up Hall Avenue towards the dentistry. Upon reaching their destination, the kids and teachers were met by 5 different Halloween stations, goodie bags to fill, and a big game of Freeze Dance. The goodies included a variety of different pre-packaged items like goldfish toothbrushes, applesauce pouches, and halloween stickers!
Thank you Henniker Family Dentistry for supporting The White Birch Center and the Henniker community at large. Community events like Spirit Week and the Halloween Parade not only help support our organization and town, but also provide a wonderful holiday experience for the many children here at White Birch. Happy Halloween!!
White Birch Center has made the difficult yet, correct, decision to cancel this year’s Kentucky Derby Party. Although we would like nothing more than to have this unique and fun event this year, especially after the trying year we have all experienced, it just simply is not the right thing to do at this time. Planning and preparation for an event such as this takes months. We began planning in January, when it looked as though there was hope that by May 1st, we would be able to hold an in person event. Unfortunately, with COVID numbers trending the way that they are and the recent guidance from Dr. Chan stating to avoid gathering in large groups, it is evident that we are not where we thought we might be by this time. We appreciate all who have purchased tickets and signed up as sponsors. We apologize for the inconvenience and we will be issuing full refunds over the next week.
We now shift our focus to NH Gives 2021. NH Gives is an online day of giving for state of NH Non-Profit organizations and will be occurring on June 8, 2021. Please stay tuned for more information on this day of giving and how you can support White Birch Center with your very own NH Gives Fundraiser!
We apologize for the inconvenience of cancelling this event and we greatly appreciate your continued support of our organization. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know!
