Service at the Children's Center for Communication

On the last day of GSEM's Whales, Tales and Trails destination, the Girl Scouts descended on The Children's Center for Communication to give a bit of service back to the communities, Beverly and Eastern Massachusetts, which had hosted them for a week.

The Children's Center for Communication was founded in 1876 as the Beverly School for the Deaf.  Now it serves children who have all sorts of communication and developmental delays.  The teachers  needed help preparing sensory materials - cutting, assembling and gluing materials that would help students learn shapes, letters and numbers. What a  perfect project for this bunch of reading and writing aficionados!  After an introduction to the school and the project, the girls went to work!

 Results - lots of terrific materials!
The girls had been working all week on making gifts for all the students (sadly, they couldn't meet them in person!) and the students left gifts for the girls too.  Now it was time for lunch and a trip to Gloucester for an ocean voyage!
