All Kinds of News for December 07, 2016
This month after the school term ends, Dragonfly Transitions students will be traveling from the small towns of Klamath Falls and Ashland to Portland, Oregon for a week of service work and sightseeing before heading home for the holiday break. The Portland trip presents students with an opportunity to get to know a wonderful city, take part in cultural experiences and broaden their horizons. Dragonfly students will volunteer in the mornings with several nonprofit organizations such as a homeless youth shelter, Native American resource center, the Oregon Foodbank, a Portland-based furniture bank and local park services. In the afternoons, students will explore the city and local attractions including Powell’s Bookstore and the famous Portland food carts.
After the holidays, several Dragonfly students will ring in the New Year with a group ski and snowboarding trip to Bend. The Dragonfly team enjoys offering this safe and fun experience over the New Year holiday. As a celebration for those who choose not to go on the ski trip, Dragonfly also hosts New Year’s Eve activities at the student community center.
