Giant Pom-Pom for Mental Health
On August 9th, 2014, The Gathering Place made an attempt for the Guinness World Record of Largest Pom-Pom! It was an amazing community event that was successful for raising awareness for community mental health and wellness! Many city officials, mental health professionals, staff and members of The Gathering Place and community members at large attended and worked for over 6 hours building an almost 4 ft tall and over 10 ft in diameter yarn pom-pom!
Though we didn't break the world record, the pom-pom activity will continue and on October 4th and 5th from 10am-5pm, at Arts/WEST, the pom-pom shaping will continue at The Fibre Faire! Join us for some more pom-pom making fun!
