We had a successful, first-ever Family Service Workshop day on Sunday, April 13th. Several families came together to create Easter-Themed placemats for the San Carlos Adult Day Services Center, run by Catholic Charities. I delivered about 20 placemats on Easter Monday. The Activity Director, Daniel, was very grateful to receive the placemats from us. As Daniel was taking me on a tour of the facility, one of the adult clients saw the placemats and exclaimed how great they were and how excited he was to use them. Thanks for brightening the day for these adults with special needs. Next year we will have a whole new project for families to come together and work on.
