The 1st part of Oct. the Ravalli County peers put together a scarecrow for the Stevensville contest. It was a great group effort. A very rough wheel chair was made for the scarecrow to sit on surrounded by all kinds of scary things made by the craftsmen at our TGIAF (Thank Goodness it’s Activity Friday) We didn’t win any of the prizes but it was a fun project.
Also in Oct. the Special Olympic Coordinator for the Bitterroot Stars stepped in and provided a large Halloween party at the Corvallis Methodist Church where we usually have one. A good time was had by all.
Life has been a little crazy with Mickey being ill and Becky on family leave. But we are muddling through. Kwanele attended the My Transitions Conference with a High school student. It sounds like they both had a good time and learned a lot. There were some excellent speakers and they met other students from all over the state.
We have kept up with the Social Security Orientation once a month, People First Aktion Club twice a month, and TGIAF once a week. The peers had their annual Christmas potluck and the Bitterroot Valley People First Aktion Club had a party and gift exchange the week before Christmas.
The Hamilton Transitions class started their Soft Skills training the beginning week of December.
