Do you want to put a smile on someone’s face as they hike through the woods on trails? Join us at Lapham Peak on Tuesday, July 7th at 6 pm at the outdoor picnic shelter next to the Evergreen shelter. We will try to maintain social distancing. If that picnic shelter is being used by another group, we will move to the Mike Fort picnic shelter by the Homestead Hollow parking lot. Scott and Elly Miller will provide 150 stones with a base color on them. What you need to bring:
1. A small paint brush or Q-tips to apply accent colors to the stones.
2. Paint palette: a paper plate or styrofoam or cardboard, etc. (Bring a weight to hold your palette down so it doesn’t blow away in the wind.)
3. Creativity…..I have 5 accent colors, yellow, pink, black, red or blue. Bring any other craft paint you have or purchase. I got mine at a hardware store for $3. (Testors Craft, 2 oz. container)
4. Google: rock painting ideas for kids to take, hide or place on hiking trails or in parks. A lot of ideas are out there. You can also bring a permanent marker to write on the stones: believe, trust, hope, dream, family, you are perfect or beautiful, etc.
5. If you want to bring a few stones that you find in your yard to add to the mix, feel free to bring whatever you want. A plain gray stone is very pretty to paint on too. Hopefully we’ll be able to place some of them throughout the trails before we leave.
If anyone would like to bring a sandwich or drink and or hike before we begin; text, message, or e-mail me with ideas. (firstname.lastname@example.org) or contact Joanne Z. or Paul K.
This event will be held even if it rains since we will be under a covered picnic shelter. We hope to see you at Lapham on July 7th!!!!!The Nordic Ski Club of Milwaukee (NSCM) will continue to practice social distancing and the use of face masks, as recommended by the CDC and Wisconsin authorities. Know that your participation in any event is at your own risk. Before attending any NSCM outing or event, please check with the event leader. Use good judgment and continue to keep us all safe.
