ORFS Covid Relief at Kolelemook Lake, Springfield, NH

Time for the Outdoor Recreation for Seniors (ORFS) to have Covid relief at the annual "Fun in the Sun" potluck picnic at Luna-See Lodge, Springfield, NH.

After ninety minutes of kayaking, paddle boarding, or hiking around Kolelemook Lake, followed by an optional swim, set up your portable chair, grab a drink, get in line for the covered dish buffet and relax with the ORFS gang. Other silly options: gratitude ceremonial dance with rhythm instruments from all over the world in thanks for our health during the pandemic; and releasing pent-up emotions whacking the virus-shaped piƱata! So let gratefulness, freedom, and fun fill our spirits as we celebrate brighter tomorrows together in typical ORFS style.

Enjoy the video of the ORFS "At Play."
