To celebrate the holidays and the completion of our first quarter together, the Zoo-Mates mentors and mentees enjoyed a festive and exciting party together at the Zoo on December 10th.
We started the party with a visit from some of the Zoo's most colorful and interesting birds! We spoke with a kookaburra, ducked as a parrot flew over our heads, and learned how owls hunt at night.
Our friends from Fidelity Investments hosted the party for us. They arranged a trail-mix snack station and took a photo of every mentee to be made into a holiday card for their families!
The folks from Fidelity also organized a coat drive, so each mentee left the party with a brand new coat and a goodie-bag full of surprises! Everyone was so excited and the room was full of laughter and thank yous!
