Congratulations to Catherine and Don, this week's Stars of the Week!
Catherine is a very friendly,
happy girl! She has a fabulous sunglasses collection and looks great in all her shades. She is a cheerful, hard worker and enjoys being with her friends at BrightStone. Her BrightStone favorites include painting, walking, bowling, doing computer activities, and helping cook lunch.
Don enjoys wearing and showing off his collection of retro tee-shirts. The Dukes of Hazzard is one of his favorites! His favorite BrightStone activities include ceramics, stretching exercises, field trips to Chick-fil-A, helping cook lunch, and singing along with Lee when he plays guitar.
BrightStone and family are once again brought to our knees in sadness as we announce the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Jim Hinton, Chairman of BrightStone's Board of Directors and past Treasurer. Jim's battle with cancer ended when he joined the angels on Friday morning, September 21.
To BrightStone families:
This October, Brenda will be leading a focus group on residence needs for BrightStone's future campus. We would like to have your input and that of your BrightStone adult on the layout and design of our future homes.
To accommodate your busy schedules, we will be holding three separate focus group meetings - each will include the same questions, surveys, and topics of discussion. Our hope is that every BrightStone student can be represented by a parent or sibling at one of the meetings.
The dates, times, and locations of the meetings are:
Tuesday, October 16th
Thursday, October 18th
Saturday, October 20th
Supervision for your adult student will be provided, if needed, at meetings 1 & 3 if
you reserve a spot. Reservations must be made at least one week prior to the meeting.
Please choose ONE meeting from the list above and email your choice to Elizebeth (firstname.lastname@example.org
). Or, call 790.4888 to let her know your choice. Please include how many will be attending the meeting (you, spouse, sibling, etc.).
Congratulations to Ali and Kelly M., this week's Stars of the Week!
Ali has been on top of his game lately. We had lots of visitors last week and he greeted them all with a handshake and a smile. it's great to see him in high spirits! His BrightStone favorites are playing ball at the YMCA, working in ceramics, bowling, and playing group games. In his leisure time he enjoys watching the Game Show Network, listening to pop music, and eating at the Golden Corral.
Kelly will gladly tell anyone that BrightStone is her favorite place on earth. She enjoys being around her friends, being productive at work, and all of our community outings. Kelly says her favorite BrightStone activities are walking, working in consumables, helping with lunch prep, and grabbing a snack at Chick-fil-A.
