Lyric’s Little Dresses for Lexington:
The Lyric implemented its first social service project, “Lyric’s Little Dresses for Lexington,” on Martin Luther King Day of Service this year. The initial goal was to create 250 “pillowcase dresses” to help clothe underprivileged girls in Lexington, but through the overwhelming community involvement they’ve collected well over 400 dresses.
This summer the Lyric begins Phase II of the Little Dresses program, where young girls will be taught to sew pillowcase dresses for Haitian and African young girls in need. The girls can experience how volunteering can teach them more about themselves and their world while preparing them for their future along with connecting them to their community. Participants must enroll by Wednesday, June 13th.
Open to girls from 10 – 16 years of age (Maximum of 21 girls). Must make commitment to attend entire summer program. Free lunches will be provided for youth (June, July & August 11th).
This class will offer preteens and teens an instrument to express themselves through acting, spoken word and self-expression. The class will end with a grand production written and directed by the youth. Acting Out will be taught by Bruce Mundy. Participants must enroll by Wednesday, June 13th.
The class is open to boys and girls 11 – 18 years of age (Maximum of 10 participants). Must make commitment to attend for entire summer program. Free lunches will be provided for youth (June, July & August 11th)
