A â€œPicnic in the Parkâ€ for the Bethany House Students and CCC Residents

For six weeks students and CCC residents have been meeting weekly for approximately one hour, working together to hone their literacy skills.
During this period a real bond between the children and residents has been formed by working together on activities such as reading, writing, crafts and games.
The students painted picture frames accenting their photo taken with a resident, which will be presented to them during the picnic.
As a way of â€œgiving back,â€ the residents and their families, as well as the staff and Colleagues at ACH have been collecting school supplies which will be given to the students at the event.
