A Message from the Executive Director:
As Thanksgiving approaches and 2015 winds down, we have much to be thankful for here at The Arc. In particular, I’ve been reflecting on all the wonderful volunteers who have made possible all that we have been able to accomplish this year. I want to highlight a few:
Doreen Ravenscroft, director of Waco Cultural Arts, who volunteers each summer to provide a wonderful art program for our summer camp.
Kandy Money, who volunteers each month as director of our Teen and Young Adult group, taking them into the community for fun-filled activities.
Mike Perry, owner of Mid-Tex Fence, who single-handedly sells about a fourth of the tables for Boots on the Brazos, our annual fundraising event.
Cathy Pearson and Elaine Karban, who round up all of the fantastic raffle items for Boots on the Brazos.
Board of Directors, President, Tommy Bowman, Greg Salome, Charles Johnson, Brandy Abel-Clark, Mike Lednicky, Kristal Lowry, Wayne Peel, Bill Gaventa, Carlie Gause, Jeff Peel, Stephen Sumrall, and Kelley Perkins, who volunteer each month to oversee The Arc’s finances and policies and are instrumental in making Boots on the Brazos such a success.
Aileen Lumpkin, Olga Crow, and Willie Hurst, who volunteer each month to facilitate a sewing class for our adults.
Anita Karney and David Gonzales, who volunteer with our Opportunity Center students/adults, taking them to deliver Meals on Wheels. Anita also takes the students to Caritas once a week.
To these special volunteers and to all of you, who in your own way contribute to the overall well-being of The Arc and the people we serve, thank you for giving of yourselves so unselfishly.
