Staff and service recipients cleaned the center, worked on outcomes, and took the article to The Leader office on Monday, June 2. Afterwards, service recipients went into the recreational room and played the CD player and listened to Michael Jackson. Everyone had a nice day.

Staff and service recipients went to the gym to exercise and workout on Tuesday, June 3.

Wednesday, June 4, staff and service recipients went outside and worked in the garden. We want to thank Mr. Bill Franklin for coming to cut the yard for us, here at the center, as well as tilling the garden for us.

Staff and service recipients were out from the center on Friday, June 6, due to inclement weather; we were glad to be back at the center on Monday, June 9, when we played on iPads and listened to a CD of Michael Jackson.

Tuesday, June 10, staff and service recipients went to the Dixon Art Gallery and Gardens in Memphis, toured the building, looked at some of the different types of plants and insects, and then had a picnic lunch on the grounds.

Thursday, June 12, staff and service recipients went to the gym to work out and to get some exercise. We worked on crosses as a craft project for Father's Day.

Until next time, Floyd Columbus.
