Summer Send-off BBQ
I just want to share with you how much I truly appreciate the many hands that went into making the “Summer Send-off” BBQ’s a great success! The work by so many people was inspiring and truly made for a series of positive events. I had the pleasure of attending each of them for a short period of time and saw how much the events positively impacted each or our residents/participants and our staff – and felt personally the distinct pleasure associated with being together with people I value just “hanging out”. The opportunities for such have been far too few during the time of the pandemic. As one person said to me, the opportunity to get together in person, to see people experiencing joy at the simple things – good food, fun games, and fellowship – was soul saving. I look forward to many more opportunities for all of us to experience joy together in the coming weeks, months and years.
Many thanks again to all of those who worked so hard to make these events a success and God Bless you all.
