Give It A Whirl

Give It A Whirl is a free program for people in recovery to try their hand at a variety of hobbies and activities while learning sober life skills.  We’ve learned to paint, made pillows, candles, stress balls, and birdhouses.  We’ve made healthy soups and snacks.  We’ve experimented with cake decorating and jewelry making.  And we’ve laughed – great big belly laughs – each and every week with all of the new friends we’ve made at the program. 

Pictured is a display at the Utica Public Library of just a few of our projects we’ve completed.
