Monarch Beach Club work alongside Community Foundation leaders during yard clean up

Several participants of the Monarch Beach Club of Dare, a day program that provides supports, services andBeach Club OBCF Yard Day 2013-3 activities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, worked alongside their neighbors from the Outer Banks Community Foundation (Community Foundation) to assist with their yard clean up day. The Community Foundation is the leading charitable funder on the Outer Banks.

 “They (Beach Club) did a great job, working very hard, with great spirit and enthusiasm. Several members of the Community Foundation leadership team, including the president and vice president, were working side by side with the Beach Club members and thoroughly enjoyed the interaction,” explained Bob Muller, treasurer and a member of the Community Foundation’s Board of Directors.

“We had a chance to appreciate the spirit and the capacities of the Beach Club members. We all were veryBeach Club OBCF Yard Day 2013 impressed and came away with a better understanding of the importance of programs like the Beach Club that provide a chance for its members to participate more fully in our community and a chance for them to contribute in very meaningful ways.  It enriches our community and everyone who comes in contact with them.”
