When your life has carried a burden of survival, when you’ve faced more challenges by age 15 than many people face in a life time, when you find yourself living in a group setting with people you’ve never met, it is quite natural to keep to yourself. So our staff and volunteers are constantly creating opportunities to have our residents work together, play together and celebrate together. This summer Brindlee Mountain Fire Apparatus invited us to tour the facility and participate in some great activities, including a chance to operate the fire hoses. Staff and volunteers also arranged a lovely graduation party for our 4 high school graduates. Thank you to Brindlee Mountain Fire and Sue Hereford with First Bank Mortgage for facilitating these activities and to the staff for constantly working on creating wonderful opportunities for the residents. We look forward to sharing more celebrations and growth this school year!
