Great set of pics and story from Diane E about Glenda W’s trip to Arion Farms. Way to go Glenda! Diane writes:
Last Friday we went to Arion farms, Glenda had expressed she wanted to go on a horse…This was her first time for her! She was so excited for weeks leading up to it! Was amazing to experience it with her!! Her caregivers came out to watch too. The reason this is so amazing is because when I first started supporting Glenda years ago, all she wanted to do was go for tea… the fact that she expressed herself that she wanted to go on a horse.. shocked me and her home share providers.. Glenda has grown so much over the years … These moments remind me of why I love my job so much!!
Eva C sent along a pile of pictures of the EPIC summer that she and Harold N have had… the Great Train Robbery… the Elvis Festival in Penticton, etc, etc, etc. Way to go you guys! Check out all the pics below and see ya out there!
Along with Community Inclusion Month, October can sometimes mean cooler weather and shorter days, along with Thanksgiving turkey comas and staying in curled up by a cozy fire…
Not this year!
Our Pumpkin Patch-ers headed out last weekend for a day enjoying the McMillan Farms pumpkin patch, corn maze, pumpkin smash, and a hay ride. While out and about, they were able to enjoy a balmy day of sunshine with an extra helping of fresh air.
We can’t imagine a better way to celebrate the very best part of inclusion – connecting with each other! Thanks to everyone who joined us, it was a great afternoon.
We’re so glad that Joanne, our fantastic Management Support Team Assistant, joined us out and about on the Farm for the sunshine and fun!
Super big thanks to our Home Share Coordinators (Brenda, Karen, and Thea) for their hard work organizing this event – and especially for the delicious snacks, warm beverages, and spook-tacular “go” bags! And an extra big “thank you” to Thea for sending along her great photos to share.
Missed heading out to McMillan Farms with us last weekend? Not to worry! There’s still plenty of time to check it out between now and Halloween…things will just get spookier towards the end of Community Inclusion Month! Check their upcoming events out on their website.
