We are building kayak's so we can go on a 3 day trip on Newfound lake. Well the way we are building the kayak's are we have to shave the plywood down to the right angels and then stick them together by glue and nails and now we are about to put it together. Another thing we are doing is camping and before that we need to test the boats first to make sure they flout then we go camping. Someone might enjoy this project because they will no how to build a boat and they can have fun doing it also.


We are building kayaks for a field trip and we will be learning how to build them and all the tools to do so. we will test them out on Newfound lake.It's in the process of construction. It's pretty cool and pretty fun at the same time. people might enjoy this experience because they will learn a lot about kayaks and how to build them .

Kayak Project

Hello I am James from NewFound Challenge. We are building kayaks in the bike shop. We are building kayaks because we want to go on a three day camping trip. The way we are building the kayaks is by cutting the wood and shaving the wood. We held the wood up by clamps. We need the kayaks to get across the water. The reason why someone would enjoy this project is that you get to test the kayaks.

Community Breakfast is Done

Here is an update on the Newfound Challenge community service project. On February 21 we had our community breakfast at the ttcc. It went pretty well. Shawn and Andy cooked the omelets. Ronci and Ms. McKenny made the mix for them. Mike, James, and Ryan took the orders down to the kitchen. I was siting upstairs writing down orders. Then Mike, James, and Ryan brought the orders up to the people.
This event benefited me as well as the community in a number of ways. Well I got the joy of helping people out and the people in the community got a free breakfast. I also got to meet some really nice people. The people also got a place to talk to their friends. We only had like 10 people show up. But we all had a great time.

Community Breakfast Reflection

On February 21, 2008 Newfound Challenge put on a free community breakfast. We cooked eggs and omelets. We got muffins, bread, fruit, cakes, eggs, and vegetables from Hannaford in Plymouth. We did this event to feed people who actually need the food.

My role in this event was setting up the tables and taking orders from guests. I welcomed the guests as they came in.

I had a fun time and I learned a lot about new people and how they lived. This event helped me to get to know the community better. This made me give back to the community. It fed more people and saved food from getting thrown out.
