On Monday June 19 at 12:30 p.m. The South Side and will Mt. Washington centers will seek out a letterbox in Frick Park on the city van.

Letter Boxing is a growing hobby combineing elements of hiking, treasure hunting and creative expression into an activity anyone can enjoy. Participants seek out hidden letterboxes by following clues that are posted on the Internet, and then record their discovery in their personal journal with the help of a rubber stamp that’s part of the letterbox. In addition, Letter Boxers have their own personal stamps which they use to stamp into the letterbox’s log book.

This will be a short hike followed by a stop at a local frozen yogurt shop. Participants are encouraged to bring their own stamp and stamp pad along with a personal journal. In July there will be a stamp and book making workshop and do it again. Register ahead of time since there is limited space on the city van.

An Open Mic Poetry Reading will take place during the June Birthday Party at 12:30 p.m. Those interested in reading should let center staff know ahead of time.

The senior center’s Summer Picnic will be on Tuesday, June 27 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sign up ahead of time to attend.
