Starting the Year in the ‘Wild West’
Imagine a warehouse full of fenced off storage spaces, cardboard boxes, and random pieces of furniture. Well, that’s what the venue of New England Region’s (NER) awesome Fall Kickoff looked like on the morning of the anticipated event. But in just a few hours, and with the hard work of teen leaders and the wonderful staff, the site was transformed into the Wild West; bales of hay, corn stalks, and twinkle lights set the stage for an unforgettable Fall Kickoff, designed to launch the new year for Jewish teens from across New England…BBYO style! Teens attended a sold-out event, ready to dance the night away with old and new friends alike. We both attended NER’s Fall Kickoff, and it was both exciting and special to spend time in my (Mason) home region amidst a record turnout.
We loved meeting more than 150 teens from NER and hearing about their passion for BBYO—I met an Aleph from a brand new chapter in Brookline and was so excited to hear that he signed up for membership, Fall Kickoff, and International Convention all in the same day! With members like him in NER, we left the event feeling inspired and energized for all the memories yet to be made in BBYO across the Order this programming year.
Check out what happened at other epic Fall Kickoff experiences in communities all across the country and around the world—including Gold Coast Region, Greater Atlanta Region, North Florida Region, and BBYO Balkans (to name just a few!).
