This year’s featured organization:

Every OctoberFeast we choose an organization to feature and help.  This year we will collect donations for the youth programs at the Morris Memorial. The Morris Memorial currently houses a free after-school program Monday through Friday for local youth. Basketball, floor hockey, arts and crafts, ping pong, foosball, pool, board games, the Wii gaming system, computer classes and homework help are offered. In addition, the Morris partners with local artists and agencies to offer enrichment classes. Some of these classes  have included foreign language instruction, Shadow Puppetry Workshop, Eco Arts and Action Workshop, Intro to Forensics , Party Planning and Gift Giving Using Recyclables and an Adult Writing Workshop.  The Morris also plays host to community groups and classes, ie) Family Resource Centers, Karate, Aikido, Tai Chi, Children’s Peace Choir, Girl Scouts, The Unicycle Club, Film Columbia and Sean’s Run.  The Morris Memorial Association also facilitates the youth soccer, basketball and track and field programs. Last year 315 children participated in the recreational soccer program held at Crellin Park, while 160 participated in the basketball program held on Sunday mornings at the Chatham Middle School.
