SESSIONS CANCELED! Please read the update below from our board:

In light of the new guidance and decisions made by Governor Larry Hogan, and the fact that all Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) will close and will remain closed through Friday, March 27, we at Circle of Hope have decided to follow these policies and cancel activities and sessions. Health officials have determined that these closures and cancellations are a necessary and effective way to stop the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, and staff remain our top priority. Please continue to take preventive measures and look out for each other. We encourage you to follow the guidance of federal, state and local health officials.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

The June NIH Field Trip is going to be Wednesday June 26th. A group of about 20 - 30 people are coming out for a "farm experience." They will ride, decorate horseshoes, make horse salad, and groom. We will begin setting up around 2:30 PM. We will need to groom and tack our horses, set up the tents, set up tables and chairs, and set up activity stations. Dinner will be included for everyone (participants and volunteers!!!) Cleanup usually takes about 45 minutes.

Please let us know if you are available!
