After making the long haul to Chelsea everyday and learning all of the creative ways that the GPS could find to get us there we were all very happy to only travel a 5 minute drive to the Wellesley, MA Housing Authority Community Center on Barton Road. This community center is close to my heart because I have been going there for the past two years helping with homework and after school games. It was great to see some old faces today and reconnect with the kids. At first we did not have any antendees but after walking around the neighborhood and making our presence known, kids started to show up. I am looking forward to tomorrow and hope that more kids will come.
Lesson of the Day: Even if you bring it, doesn't mean they will come. The people you are reaching out to aren't always going to come running, most often you are going to have to get out and find them. So start looking!
