Hollow Drive DREAM Monthly Snapshot May 2013 Program Happenings and Highlights • •

The DREAM office welcomed 4 seniors to the Alumni Organization on May 10. Thanks to generous funding from a DREAM Alumni Grant, Hollow Drive mentoring pairs celebrated the end of spring term with a trip to Canobie Lake Park. Mentors and youth expanded their comfort zones by riding roller coasters, playing arcade games, and exploring the water park. DREAM thanks Eliza Hanson for her dedication to Hollow Drive as a co-chair for the past year. Graham Mellen and Meaghan Allyn will join Same Gardner as co-chairs this summer.

Weekly Programming with Children • •

There were three regular DREAM Fridays in May. There was no DREAM on May 17 as there were no classes for Dartmouth’s spring weekend. Mentors and youth participated in one-on-one and small group activities on Dartmouth’s campus. Activities included racquetball, swimming, soccer, and kickball games on the green. Mentoring pairs joined the Northwoods and Windsor/Union Square Local Programs, as well as two other on-campus mentoring groups, for a Spring Fling event on May 10. Activities included a pie throwing contest, face painting, tie-dye, and a raffle.
