Franklin High School Students competed in the Design Drafting Competition.
We had 9 Junior Girl Scouts in the morning for the gardening workshop. The activities went well, and they had fun building the box for their zen gardens at the end. In the afternoon we had 3 Seniors for the room makeover workshop. They all got experience using the tools, and measured, cut, and assembled the pieces themselves.
Many thanks to Lisa for being there to support us this weekend, and to the OTI organization for sharing their space!
