We will be returning to Babler State Park for camping March 31-April 2. We will be staying in cabins, and we have access to the Rec Hall and its kitchenette, similar to what we had last October.

The cost will be the same as in the Fall: $30/person for the whole weekend or $10/person Saturday only – Includes Cabin and Food.

Activities will include some of the following:

  1. Gaga
  2. Make signs for the People’s Joy Parade
  3. First Aid Training
  4. Archery (with a safety lesson)
  5. Geode hunt
  6. Hiking
  7. Geocaching (either official geocaches or our own)
  8. Orienteering Egg Hunt
  9. Sunday Morning trip to the Visitor’s Center.
  10. Slackline

Please see the flyer for more details.

If you plan to attend, please email Mike Jones your RSVP.

April 22: Farming
We are planning an outing to the St. Louis Science Center’s GROW exhibit to learn about the journey of food to our tables. Ideally, we will have a presentation from the Science Center to help us learn, but if there are scheduling difficulties, we will do a self-guided tour of the exhibit. The cost will depend on whether we have a docent.

Note: we will try to schedule the outing not to conflict with Earth Day and March for Science activities that day.

May 7 Add-On: People’s Joy Parade
We are in discussions with the People’s Joy Parade to participate with a float. The Senior Navigators Leaders (Ellen Wilson and Andy Ford) will be talking to Senior Navigator families about taking the lead for our participation. Haley Pepper is building a banner for us to carry.

Please fill out the Evite for the parade so that we can plan the size of our group.

Reminder: An add-on is an event that some families in Navigators might attend, but not an event for which we are having a formal presence. If you know of other events that might be fun for Navigators, please let us know, and we will advertise them and add them to our calendar.

May: Camping/Space/Mine
We intend to camp the weekend of May 19-21 in or near St. Francois State Park, combined with a visit to a Space Museum and possibly the mine tour there. We do not have a campsite reservation yet, so the actual weekend might shift depending on what is available.

The April General Meeting will be at 9:45 am at the Ethical Society on April 16.

April Council Meeting
Our next Council meeting is scheduled for 9:30 am on April 9 in the Nursery School Green Room. All are welcome to observe and comment.
