We are feeling festive today as we prepare to celebrate Christmas with our Board of Directors, Staff, and Volunteers! The ham and turkey are in the oven and the side dishes are being prepared. We want to take this moment to wish you and yours all the love, joy, and hope that this season brings!
The Independent Living Skills & Social Group enthusiastically built containers and planted a variety of vegetables, herbs, and greens, diligently watered them, and were excited to harvest the fruits of their labor! Chef Donna who taught the Cooking Matters class graciously returned to whip the harvest into a yummy and nutritious dish that everyone enjoyed! We look forward to future harvests!
