Darwin Day Celebration - Great Story Beads

  • This location is shown only to members

We made the story bead necklaces 2 years ago and it was a great meetup!  Are you a member that joined in the last 2 years?  Did you make a necklace 2 years ago but it broke?  (Mine did)  Do you just want to make another one with some different beads?  Come and join us on Sunday, February 10 to celebrate Darwin Day and make a necklace that is a timeline of the universe!

Darwin Day is a global celebration of science and reason held on or around Feb. 12, the birthday anniversary of evolutionary biologist Charles Darwin. http://www.darwinday.org/index.php

Let's celebrate by creating Earth Story Bead necklaces. These are beads strung to create a time line of the creation of the universe with larger beads representing the major events. For example, sun, earth, plants, and dinosaurs. You can learn more here: http://www.thegreatstory.org/great_story_beads.html#intro

We will follow a timeline that has about 25 events.  We will have snacks and cake to celebrate Darwin's Birthday.  I will accept donations to help cover the cost of the beads.  You can see photos of the previous Darwin Day meetup here: http://www.meetup.com/DallasBrights/photos/1261346/21392115/#[masked]

Hope to see you there!

    We are sorry to cancel too! The kids are still getting over a virus, and we don't want to spread it to anyone. Shannon, we were going to contribute some money for the beads... Maybe I can send you something via PayPal. Let me know!

      We missed you at the meetup! I am going to make up some kits with the timeline and the beads for those interested and couldn't come so you can make it at home. I'll see you at the next meetup!

    We are looking forward to our meetup on Sunday! I have purchased all the beads for our timelines and they are beautiful! I am working on the timeline and have added a few items to our last one so we will have 30 events. I have ordered a cake to celebrate Darwin's Birthday. Feel free to bring a snack to share.

      School age kids, around 5 and up, will get the most out of it. Little kids are welcome to come but will need a lot of help with the small beads.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
