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.
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!
