FIELD DAY JUNE 17, 2021

 

The spirit of competition was in the air for our annual CSSI Field Day! This was our second opportunity to come together in person to enjoy a beautiful day. We opened the event with the parachute ceremony. It was so heartwarming to see everyone encircled and working together, which was a reflection of unity and friendship. 

 

The field day events included the bean bag throw, to see how far our champions could throw; next was the ladder toss; the obstacle course; and we ended with the beloved tug-of-war! Even though it was a competition, the atmosphere was filled with encouragement and comradery as everyone cheered each other on! It just felt good to be “Us”again! Everyone was a winner as we recognized that we all made it through a very difficult and challenging past year, and we are all still here to be with one another. We are excited to share in more wonderful events ahead!

SCAVENGER HUNT

MAY 2021

The scavenger hunt at the park, held in May 2021, was CSSI's FIRST IN-PERSON EVENT since the onset of the COVID-19 Pandemic. It was truly inspiring to be able to see so many people again in person after over a year of being at home or through ZOOM. We are so grateful for so many getting the COVID-19 vaccine:  we were able to hug, see each other's smiling faces and feel like things were getting back to "normal!" This was a new event for CSSI held in the park where teams were divided up and they scavenged for various items. When you found an item, it was yours to keep!  Things to find ranged from hula hoops to card games to Frisbees to a special hidden treasure box with gift cards.  To top things off, the park had a zip line for those brave enough to ride. This was a highlight to end the event!  It was a beautiful day to come together, socialize and appreciate all that we have been through over the past year. We are looking forward to a summer filled with more in-person, outdoor events!

FALL HIKE, SEPTEMBER 29, 2021

 

As the weather was cooling and the leaves were turning, we ventured out to Bible Park to enjoy the new season.  A rainstorm that afternoon almost wiped out our plans, but we decided that none of us was likely to melt under a few drops and moved forward anyway!

 

The evening was cool but dry, and the group that gathered enjoyed a lovely hike!  Bible Park offers accessible trails through natural open-space type terrain as well as the well-maintained park areas and playing fields.  The scenery was beautiful, the exercise invigorating, and the conversations uplifting for all.
