“Yes things have truly slowed down to the pace of a snail- or so it may seem from an outsider’s perspective. Last week, we tied up the loose ends of the winter season. After our staff enrichment day we all took last Thursday off to go ski Whiteface together- quite a hoot, let me tell you. We made it back in time to see the heavy snow that had fallen at PMOEC, more than we had seen at Whiteface in fact, and worried that it would affect the turnout for the evening’s lecture. However, an incredibly inviting, warm and interesting presentation from Kristin Kimball brought plenty of folks out through winter’s latest gasp.
On Saturday Denise and Allison went to the Willsboro FareWELL to Winter and made quite a splash with their scat display, their indoor animal tracking activity enjoyed by young and old according to multiple independent reports and their unending willingness to expound on what we do at PMOEC; an institution that still is shrouded in mystery for many of the locals during the school year. “No we aren’t a commune,” was probably uttered more than once by two of our greatest educators. Now, we shore up the center in preparation for the spring season. I keep waiting on a boring week at PMOEC so I don’t have so much to report. Maybe in mid-June.
For now, I invite you all to see our last Lecture. Local Jeff Cochran, who many of you may know form his amazing abilities at the Crux climbing center or as the consummate employee at The North Country Co-Op, will be telling stories, singing songs, reading poetry and being all together interesting for your please. Come and bring a friend.” It’s free! Tonight at 7pm! [Stites McDaniel- Making Learning Natural: A Strong Snail.]
