On Saturday, December 4, a few of our day program members and recruiters for the Arc braved the chilly weather and participated in the annual Christmas Parade in Springfield. Not only did the individuals participate the day of, they had been working on creating a perfect float for the occasion.
The theme of the float was Twas the Night Before Christmas featuring festive decorations resembling that of a home decorated for the holidays. Our very own Director of Human Resources dressed the part of Santa Claus and waved to the crowd of spectators.
Our clients had a great time both decorating the float, as well as participating in the parade by riding the float and handing out candy to the children in the crowd.
A big thank you to those that attended the parade this year!
