Thrive will present Dynamite Dads: Lego Extravaganza on Wednesday, January 16th from 5:30–7pm. This edition of the popular series will take place at Belgrade Community Library, located at 106 N Broadway. Come construct objects, vehicles, buildings, robots, houses, or whatever your imaginations will let you build! Thrive will be on hand with dinner and the Belgrade Library will provide the Legos.
This event series puts male role models in the spotlight and fosters the father-child bond. Dynamite Dads is free of charge and dinner is always included – plus, moms get a night off! Preregistration is required for these events.
Looking ahead, Thrive needs your help recruiting 100 new CAP mentors! The 5th Annual CAP Recruitment Trivia Night is set for Monday, January 28th. The event returns to Starky’s Authentic Americana, 24 N Tracy Ave., from 6–8pm. Invite your brainiest friends to share in a night of fun, trivia, free appetizers, and learning about the amazing benefits of mentoring. Trivia teams are made up of 4 to 6 people with a registration fee of $10 per person.
Thrive’s Child Advancement Project, or CAP, matches adult volunteers from the community with children in Bozeman and Big Sky Public Schools. These mentors work one-on-one with students in grades K-12 to provide support and encouragement. Mentors help students discover and build upon their individual strengths, and affirm each student’s ability to shape their own futures.
Also this month, Thrive and the Parent Place’s Gym Days continue in Bozeman and Belgrade. Gym Days are designed for parents and toddlers to have a place to go, socialize, and actively play on cold Montana winter days! The Parent Place provides plenty of riding toys, tunnels, and balls for the kids to play with. The Bozeman and Belgrade school districts each generously provide a space for use one hour a week during the school year.
On Wednesdays, Belgrade Gym Days are held from 11am–12pm at Heck-Quaw Elementary, located at 308 N Broadway. On Thursdays, Bozeman Gym Days are held from 10–11am at the Willson School Gym, located at 404 W Main St. Please note: there will be NO Bozeman Gym Day on Jan. 3rd.
