Zack's Place Upcoming Renovation
 
Zack's Place would like to give a big hug and thank you to the staff and Board at Pentangle Arts for Hosting ou
r musical May 31st at Town Hall Theater! We are so grateful!  

Our Upcoming Renovation
 In September of last year we realized that our art room and kitchen were getting a bit snug with more than 4 people in wheel chairs and classes of over 20 people. We talked to our board member Ron Jaynes a retired local builder and he helped us redesign our art room and change our kitchen so it was more accessible. In the fall of 2016 we applied for a grant to renovate our space and we were granted $25,000 from Timken and also received a $2500.00 Grant.
On June 14th we will be renovating our art room and kitchen.  In the meantime we will be running our programs out of Woodstock Elementary School from the 15th of June-31st of July. We will keep you posted as to the progress.


May in Review

The month of May was a busy month at Zack's Place! Although we were dodging in and out of the rain drops, we still managed to indulge in a lot of fun indoor and outdoor activities. We are welcoming the slow start of summer, enjoying the green grass and the fresh flowers popping up all over town.
In the mornings we enjoyed crafts with Kitty, fitness with Bari, nutrition and meditation with Vince, bowling at Maple Lanes, a variety of art classes with Marissa, Lolly and Bonnie(most of which involved making wonderful props for our play) and we took a couple of "dips" at the aquatic center. This month we were also blessed with some great theater productions, seeing the movie "Beauty and the Beast" and the production "Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun" at Pentangle, both of which were wonderful, a big thank you to Pentangle!                                                                                                                                             A theater highlight for us this month was going to WRJ's Northern Stage to see the musical "Mama Mia," it was an unbelievable performance, which everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy! We started our adventure at Annie O'Neill's apartment where we did a yoga class with Jess and then had lunch and a great birthday celebration for Annie! Thank you to Dana, Dave and Annie for a wonderful time. In the mornings we also did a few "farm programs" at Billings Farm and met up with Vermont Adaptive for some fabulous hiking and cycling along the Lebanon rail trail.
In the afternoons we had pottery with Fiona, science with Corinna, movement and music with Kathleen and Mark, singing with Kerry and a onetime cameo singing session with Sara Norcross and Suzy Malerich, we had yoga at ZP with one of our many yogi teachers (Lalita, Tita, Jamie and Jess), games with Carl Hurd, Hiking on Mount Tom and at Frates Farm, Gardening with Martha, and dancing with Jen.
We also spent a great deal of time this month practicing and working on our ZP musical "Charlotte's Web" which takes place this Wednesday May 31st at 5:30 at the Woodstock town Hall Theater.         One last exciting trip that only a few of us embraced (because it involved leaving Woodstock at 6am) was going to Stowe Elementary school to receive a monetary gift from Chelsea Stetson's 3rd grade class, who fundraised over $2,000.00 in a cross country ski race for ZP. A HUGE thank you to Chelsea and her class!
Overall, a very busy and wonderful month for all of us at ZP!
