This past month has proven to be a momentous one as we enjoyed two significant events! First, the expansion project was completed and The Next Stop is now enjoying more space and a kitchen. We will soon have people from our waiting list visiting and hopefully registering into The Next Stop. So far, we’ve baked blonde brownies and apple pies in our own double oven. Members are taking turns helping to wash and dry the dishes. Over the next few weeks, we will be working to become proficient in using all our new kitchen appliances and supporting our members as they learn too.
The expansion project actually was finished just 3 days before our biggest fundraiser of the year! Yes, it has been a very busy time! Our annual golf tournament/dinner and wine event took place on May 2nd–and for the first time in five years, it wasn’t rainy or cold! We all enjoyed a beautiful day celebrating The Next Stop and raising funds to continue advancing the program. Thanks to everyone who participated and/or helped in the planning and implementing!
