Friends First Launches Into Its Biggest Year Yet
This year’s family activity was making exfoliating hand scrubs by mixing together various ingredients. Using olive oil or coconut oil as a base, attendees then added sugar and other essential oils in a winning combination.
“The hand scrubs were a very big hit! A lot of the mothers and mentees really enjoyed that,” said Lucas. “We ran out of jars and no one wanted to start lunch because they didn’t want to stop that activity.”
Lucas said there was something electric about this year’s launch because after lunch, all the matches couldn’t wait to get back together and hang out with each other, one-on-one. That kind of excitement was a good indicator that matches were clicking, she said. In fact, matches were having so much fun that they continued to hang out long after the event’s formal closing.
