Best of All: Fantastic Friends Kicks off 2024!

A Vision Board Party to celebrate the New Year!

By Mia and Holly Siino

Every year, Fantastic Friends kicks off our programming by creating vision boards during our first session. First, each person did their brainstorming for their goals for 2024. Then we assembled our boards using magazine pictures. Finally, we shared the boards with everyone. It helped us to get to know each other better and learn about our favorite hobbies and interests. 

Below are some of the finished products and a little bit about the Fantastic Friend who made them:
