Before Christmas Letter


Dear Parents / Care Givers / Friends;

I would like to add my holiday wishes to everyone else’s as we enter into our long Christmas weekend. I have so many things to be grateful for that I hope I can remember them all.

Our canned food drive was successful – we were able to fill six boxes with food for those who are struggling. Thank you for your help with this important community project.

Thanks to Canfield Industries for their continued kindness in providing games, puzzles, cards, calendars and art supplies for everyone. We will enjoy each gift.

Thanks to the many families who supported our No Limits Café and bakery with cookie tray orders. Your purchases help to keep our folks employed and productive.

Thanks to the Rosinski Family for buying lunch for the all of the employees to thank them for their dedication and kindness.

Thanks to Ted, our carpenter, for providing turkeys and trimmings for everyone to enjoy a Thanksgiving lunch together.

Thanks to Jerry Morell for his monetary donation, good work and expertise in creating wheelchair and standard swings for our revamped back patio. We look forward to many years of fun!

A few weeks ago I asked for your valuable time in filling out the County Board’s    3 year planning strategic survey. Your response was helpful and appreciated. Then I sent home the Turning Point / No Limits Satisfaction Survey and once again, your response has been amazing. Please do not hesitate to send in yours if you haven’t completed it yet.  I know how hard it is to find the time to do so, especially this time of year, but we want to know how to improve our services.

Finally, I want to share some good news. Thanks to the late Kevin Keevey and his mother, the late Katie DiCiccio Keevey for their generous donation of money to enhance our programs. Their original donation of $10,000 paid for the wheelchair and standard swings on the patio and the concrete work. Their estate just gave Turning Point / No Limits another $50,000 to enjoy. More information will be forthcoming as we discuss how we want to spend the money for the benefit of all who attend here.  It was our pleasure to know and work with Kevin. His gentle spirit will not be forgotten.

If I have forgotten anyone in this long list, know that we need and appreciate you!  We treasure your kind words more than you can know. You are all generous with your praise and it inspires us to continue to do our best work. You have entrusted us with your most precious possession and we do not take that lightly.   

Merry Christmas,
