What does it mean? It means a board of directors that actually did the work. For three years worth of Saturdays the BMCYF Board built the youth center in West Point. We had a team of people who worked well together, laughed, eat lunch and worked some more. Teamagic continues to work with community gardens, community dinners, radio station, a vibrant youth center, with all the other things that happen at BMCYF. 9-11 is remembered all over the US as the terrible event that it was. However, here at the center there is an additional meaning. Our first community dinner was planned for that day. Western Shoshoni spiritual leader Corbin Harny was with us. That day was a step forward for the youth center and our community. Thank you Ted Torren for your dedication to our center, thank you board, thank you staff, thank you kids, thank you community! We are a family. So with all that in mind it can give you an idea what the Teamagic award stands for. Congratulations Steve Wilensky, you earned it!
Another step toward reality! Community radio in West Point will be a transformative experience. There is not enough to be said for Catherine, Mark, the radio board and BMCY&F for the mind draining commitment that is bringing a full power FM station to our town and poorly served region. Bear in mind this isn’t government or business creating this opportunity that will open so many doors for so many people. The success of this event will have reverberations far and wide!
This is an updated post as of 12 Oct. Please note the new times and days for these great classes.
Vielka Escobar, nuestro profesora de español. An outstanding opportunity has been presented to those interested in learning Spanish right here in West Point. Vielka is a highly educated and eminently qualified teacher who could be conducting classes at university level. And besides that she’s great fun! There is a Monday class at 6:45pm which is beginning Spanish and a Wednesday class at 6:30 for conversational Spanish with a suggested donation of $10.00 per class. Buck the trend, join the rest of the world and learn a second language. Your Spanish speaking friends and neighbors will respect you for the effort and you will find a different perspective on the world.
Yes it was cool but in some minds it was better than blazing hot. The art was beautiful, the garden is wonderful and there were lots of people enjoying the early summer day. There was fine music and food and great opportunity to relax and enjoy the moment with friends not seen for a while. Many of our favorite artisans dazzled us with new works and a number of new booths and new friends to meet with their fine creations.
Late winter 2012 and Revive & Relief along with BMCYF board members dig into the garden for our next season of bringing bounty to West Point. Compost and manure, mulch and tilling, new greens, and more raised beds all on the list and the work is getting done. A wonderful mural wall is in place and we look forward to the creativity that will enhance every ones community garden experience. Saturdays 9:00 to noon is a good time to see and participate in the action.
