A small group of astronauts hit planet Earth a couple weeks ago to plan a bumpin' Halloween party for Outdoor Ambassadors Librazhd.
Outdoor Ambassadors Sarande brought the party recently at local lokali in honor of Halloween. A unique combination of American and Albanian traditions were shared by all as traditional circle dancing and costumes were enjoyed by all.
Patos & Fier Outdoor Ambassador Groups combined this year for the 2nd Annual Halloween Party in Patos. Activities began with costumes & face painting, pumpkin carving & veggie monster creations, games, dancing and ended with apple bobbing.

"Another great Outdoor Ambassador's meeting this week in Patos. We weeded the pumpkin patch, counting over a dozen flowers on the vines so far. We picked the last of this year's blackberries and discussed healthy snacking. Finally, we had a lengthy discussion about the proper care and treatment of dogs. My family's puppy "Lordi" was a good natured co-instructor today, helping show how dogs live in family groups, show emotions with their faces, hear better than they see, and love to romp and play with their family, just like people do. Three of our members were slightly frightened of dogs before the lesson. Afterward, all the children said they would like to have a puppy live with their family. I call that progress!"

Outdoor Ambassadors Patos
Why not kick of those flip-flops, and take a dive in? Outdoor Ambassador Librazhd decided to take a walk on the 'cool' side and took a small trip to Lake Ohrid in Pogradec recently to escape some of these freakishly high summer temperatures that Albania has been experiencing.
How have you been cooling off?
On Monday, July 22nd, 2013, some of the kids of Patos spent the morning planting pumpkin seeds in anticipation of their 2nd Annual Halloween Party coming up in October. Last years event was without pumpkins, so they decided to plant some of their own. The children learned about proper planting procedures, and finished the day with ice cream.

Outdoor Ambassador members in Sarande took part this past weekend in a PCV project that taught dental hygiene to a Roma village outside of town. The members successfully led and assisted with the lessons. It helped further their own personal presentation and leadership skills, as well as showed the Roma that their own country men care too.
