Posted in Blog on December 13th, 2017 by Webmaster

On November 11, 2017, Manassas Assembly celebrated the people who have earned the Grand Cross of Color degree with a ceremony and Lasagna dinner.  The cake to celebrate was good!  It was followed by us making Christmas cards for the residents at MAHOVA.  Zoey W. organized the event.  She had great decorations and she had the tables arranged in a cross to celebrate the occasion.  We were able to honor:  Gigi, Mom Cherry, Dad Bill, and Mom Jean during the ceremony.  The girls who were there included:  Gigi, Katie, Kate, Delanie, Zoey W., Vanessa, Joella, Sami, Abigail, and me.  Zoey’s little brother Sam was also there.  Adults who were there for the event were:  Mom Priscilla, Dad Tom, Dad Bill, Mom Cherry, Dad Clancy, Mom and Dad Wertman, Mom Paula, Mom Robin (missed the ceremony but was there for cards), Mom Joanne, Mom Ange, and Mom Louisa.

On September 17, 2017, we met at the corner of Godwin and Ashton Ave at the 7-Eleven to clean up the street.  Zoey W. organized the event with Dad Costis and he was able to direct us in how to pick up the trash. He was able to provide us with vests, grabber tools, gloves, and trash bags so we could clean up the street.  Our group was limited in size so this time the girls that helped were:  Gigi, Kate, Zoey, Vanessa, M’Balu, Batu, Jazmyn, and me.  Parents there included:  Dad Tom, Dad Bill, Mom Debra, Mom Paula, Mom Joanne, and Mom Louisa.  We found some interesting things on the side of the street and someone even found a credit card!  We finished in less than an hour and then went back to the Lodge to get something to drink before going home.

Chesapeake Bay Day

Posted in Blog on August 28th, 2017 by Webmaster

On Sunday, August 7, 2017, Virginia Rainbow held our first statewide fun event. We visited The Brock Environmental Center, girls in attendance from Manassas were: Gigi, Katie, Dalanie, Zoey W, Joella, Sami, Isabella, Alyssa, and myself. We started with an introduction where we met our guides and then we each got a partner and had to introduce them to the whole group. After that we split into groups and each group had to answer questions or think of questions about The Center, after everyone had their answers each group presented what they had learned. Some cool things about The Center are that they have compost toilets, they recycle rainwater as drinking water, and that a lot of the materials used as floors came from a school. Next, we went to an area at the edge of the water where we saw some snails and a baby turtle. After that we played a game where a “bay saver” had to try to catch everyone. After that, we went seining, which is catching fish, crabs, and jellyfish. We caught same very cool jellyfish and some pretty big blue crabs. Finally, we ate lunch and headed home. It was a fun day!
