Arc of Stanly hosts several activities for local group home
Members of the Arc of Stanly Advisory Board Committee have hosted two recent initiatives for the residents of one of Monarch’s residential homes in Stanly County.
The committee delivered many items for the ladies to use to decorate their home, especially to help spruce up their outdoor space. The ladies of the home were surprised by the group’s gifts of a bird bath, several flowers pots, a hummingbird feeder, multiple bird feeders and best of all refreshments. A beautiful handmade doll house was donated for the ladies to paint and decorate.
A few weeks later, the Arc of Stanly Advisory Committee took the residents on a pontoon boat ride. The residents and Monarch staff were guests at the home of Gloria and John Bowers for a fun and relaxing afternoon. The weather could not have been any more perfect for their “excursion” on Lake Tillery, which was the first boat ride for some. After the ride, the ladies were treated to homemade pound cake, sugar cookies and ice cream. After an outdoor afternoon of fun, there was no shortage of smiles among everyone who participated.
Thanks to attending committee members, their spouses and families, including, Kevin Garrison and son Henry; Larry and Brenda Hinson, Gloria Bowers, Rachel Morrison, Mary Medlin, Dave and Jackie McGowen for their support. Each year, the Arc of Stanly Advisory Board Committee selects a local group home to support for the entire year, including hosting an event at Christmastime.
