Recreation and Vacation

Each individual needs time out for rest and renewal. The program offers opportunities for the workers to participate in recreational activies such swimming, bowling, Walker Center events, and field trips, picnics, movies and parties. The workers have the choice to save for a vacation which they help plan. We have visited Myrtle Beach many times, in 1992 took a trip to Disney World and have vacationed in Pigeon Forge.
