Our Story – Fun and Games

September 25, 2020

In a nod to simpler times, when we could safely gather, New Life was a great place for family friendly games and fun. For example, in 1988 there was a Olympic style event planned for the kids. Maybe not your usual sporting events but feats of skill none the less.

Jello eating!

Yard Bowling

Disc throwing

Three legged race

Spoon races

Big wheel or scooter obstacle course

And shaving balloons!

Throughout our history there has been many baseball games on the lawn, volleyball, horseshoes and eating contests. All brought people together to create connections and memories.
