Here is an overview of what the Ball State NSSLHA Chapter has been doing this academic year! In October some of our members went to the Whispering Pines Equestrian Center and helped out with therapeutic horseback riding. The NSSLHA members helped brush off the horses and got them ready to ride. They walked alongside the horses holding the children on the horses to help with the therapy.
For Thanksgiving and Christmas we had a food drive and the proceeds went to Second Harvest Food Bank in Muncie. We also had a clothing drive and asked members to bring in clothing items they no longer wore and then we donated the clothes to Muncie Missions. We also made Thanksgiving and Christmas cards which we sent to Elmcroft Nursing Home here in Muncie.
During January, February, March, and April we have scheduled game nights with the Elmcroft Nursing Home. Some of our members have gone to play games such as “Spoons” and “Uno” with the members of the nursing home and have made some special friends. We will also be playing “Bingo” and “Headbandz” at our upcoming game nights at Elmcroft. The NSSLHA members are currently helping the SPAA department get ready for the end of the year honors banquet.
At our previous meeting some of the NSSLHA members took a photo thanking President JoAnn Gora for her time here at the University! At our last meeting of the year we will be holding elections for the executive board. We are all very excited to see what the 2014-2015 academic year brings to our Ball State NSSLHA Chapter!
