Attached you will find the completed calendar for June. A few new events we are doing in the community this month include sailing in Newport Beach and taking a trip to the South Coast Botanic Garden in Palos Verde. As always, we will be bowling next week, going to the horse ranch (will be taking a break in July and August), going to the movie theater, gliding (flying in a plane with no engine). All of these events must be discussed with us before attending, as spots are limited.
On campus, next Thursday June 7th the beauty school volunteers will be coming in to provide free hairs, manicures, and facials. Drop in if you are on campus that day.
Every Thursday afternoon at 2pm we have a music group, Rock to Recovery where the Veterans all write a song about a theme. They play the instruments and sing the song as a group.
Every Friday we have a drawing instructor come in and teach drawing techniques. In R205, room next door to the CPVA office, you can see some of your fellow Veterans art work hanging on the wall. ANYONE can draw, don’t doubt yourself!
Also, we have several different types of leather and wood craft kits available for you to complete. If you need assistance, Crystal and I will gladly find time to provide any help you need.
Please don’t hesitate to ask for anything, as we are here to help create a program that will benefit you!
