We Did It!

 

Several brave Schooner employees and residents were happy to participate in the worldwide challenge, the “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge”, a worthwhile cause which is helping to raise funds and awareness for Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Our residents did the pouring and employees were the receivers! We are incredibly grateful to everyone who was willing to stand up to ALS!

 

2014 Craft Fair Review

 

Our annual craft fair, held on October 18th, once again provided an exciting venue for Schooner residents and outside crafters to display their creative skills and crafty talents. The resident proceeds are added to the Camp Sunshine fund. Crafters tables lined the area, filled with beautifully displayed handcrafted items.

A special thank you goes to all who worked so hard, and contributed in any way to help make this day a success!

A Day Trip to Camp Sunshine

 

A group of our residents were excited to spend a morning at Camp Sunshine. Many give of their time throughout the year to raise scholarships for ill children and their families to attend this amazing camp.
