had been trying to think of some year-round events we could do
with the community, and a librarian told me about the Sing With
Our Kids website. I filled out the community assessment form,
using the guide, and it really helped me figure out where the
best places would be to have events.
This summer we had campfire sing-alongs
just after dark. We projected the website lyrics on an outdoor
screen so everyone can sing along. A few of our employees play
guitar, so they played, and we invited folks to bring their
instruments as well. We’re going to hold a community caroling
event this December and invite folks to bring their Smartphones
to read along with the lyrics as we walk around the business
We’ll finish at the community center
with hot chocolate and cookies. I love the event planner in the
community toolbox that makes it so easy to plan our events! "
