Campfire Stories

Ice Cream Social

The promise of ice cream brought a crowd despite the wet, chilly conditions of May 21st 2018. We began the afternoon in Menomonee Falls by sharing our favorite flavors; a lot of us like everything! We decorated spoons with wire and beads, made our own ice cream sundaes, learned about the history of ice cream, and topped it off with a sing-a-long.

 

Celebrating Spring

Held the day before the equinox, March 19th 2018, this Café was for preparing to welcome spring. At the Brookfield Public Library we painted terra cotta pots and then planted marigold seeds so we can hone our gardening skills.

 

Presidents’ Day

We got together at the Germantown Community Library on February 19th, 2018. The main event was making our own silhouettes in the style of the presidential faces on our coins. While tracing shadows, we enjoyed cherry desserts; a nod to the myth of George Washington and the cherry tree.

 

Wild Plum Kickoff

The first café of the Wild Plum Memory Project was held at the Menomonee Falls Public Library on the snowy afternoon of January 15th, 2018. We opened by talking about what we’re looking forward to in the new year, then made Gratitude Jars. Take a look at our kickoff!
