N&N: Region 6 to hold Monarch Family Fun Day
Staff members in Region 6 are preparing for its first ever Family Fun Day. Susan Haywood, an operations director, said the event was created to help bring together people supported, families and staff in the increasingly large Region 6, which includes 12 counties. The distance of the region often creates a challenge for staff and residents to connect with those at different sites.
Family Fun Day is an opportunity for fellowship and interaction. “Hopefully families will leave this event with a great impression of Monarch and they will get the opportunity to meet staff (direct support, management level, administrators) who work hard to provide quality support to their loved ones on a daily basis, and have fun at the same time,” Haywood said.
The Family Fun Day will include food, fun, games and entertainment will be provided by a comedian/magician and songs by a staff choir and a bell choir. Several door prizes will be awarded and all participates will receive a goody bag.
When: March 8, 2014 from 1 p.m.-4 p.m.
Where: Jones County Civic Center, 832 Hwy. 58 South, Trenton, NC
The invitation is extended to all staff, PWS and their family members and guardians in Region 6.
