Look at the crewmembers all ready to start rowing!

Look at the crewmembers all ready to start rowing!

Already into the second half of my stint leading a Seattle Community Crew, and I can’t believe it has gone by so quickly! I guess it’s true that time flies when you’re having fun.

This week’s theme for educational lessons was professionalism, and on Monday, we started off with a session on budgeting.

We got our Burlap (and mulch) delivery! Here’s a picture of SCA’s Finest taking a break on the comfy burlap, soon to be used for purposes other than cushion.

After our first week at the site, SCA’s Finest crew has finally settled down into a fun and productive routine, which perfectly fits one of our frequently used mottos, “work hard, play hard”.

SCA’s Finest with our group contract.

Hello to you from Seattle, Washington! My name is Kalina, a born and raised Seattleite currently attending the University of Washington. I have participated in SCA’s International Crew, its Seattle school year program, and now I’m privileged enough to be the crew leader apprentice for a summer community crew program.
