Open House and BBQ in Sterling

Check out the fun we had hosting the Open House last week! We are so grateful to the Family Resource Center for hosting us downstairs in the courtyard while families and consumers toured the offices upstairs. We also appreciated Leticia Arguello from the ARC joining us for the Resource Fair! Jeff Rice from the Journal Advocate joined us on site to gather more information. We are grateful to him and the paper for reporting and sharing the news of our new location. And last but not least, a big thanks to Jimmy L’s for catering the event and to the Logan County Chamber of Commerce for facilitating the ribbon cutting ceremony out front.

 

Thanks again to everyone that helped make this event a success. We couldn’t do it without you and look forward to this next step of People Helping People on the Eastern Plains and beyond!

Patrick Goes to Camp

When Patrick was younger, doctors told his family that he would never be able to show emotion or smile. As you can see from the photos, Patrick proved them wrong!

Every year since he was a kid, Patrick has attended Adam’s Camp. He knows everyone there and they all know him. It is one of Patrick’s favorite places to be, and it always puts a smile on his face. This year, he got to spend some time in the mountains and enjoy a gondola ride, go swimming with his favorite camp counselor, and even help make some music for everyone.

Patrick’s family caregivers, Kelly and Steve, know how important camp is to Patrick and always make sure everything is ready, so he is able to go each year. Kelly keeps photo albums of each year, and it is always so great looking through them and seeing how happy camp makes Patrick.
