Great job guys!
These guys had a great time these past two weeks, volunteering at the latest build for Habitat for Humanity. Last week they went out to lay sod and this week they returned to do some maintenance and cleanup work. Next week they will be present for the dedication. They love to help out and work as a "team" doing these projects.
Great job guys!
There's no better way to enjoy the beautiful Alabama weather than spending an afternoon in the company of some good folks! 334 Jeeps, a local Jeep enthusiast group, was so kind to donate all proceeds from T-shir, raffle tickets and food sales to the Smith Center. We had a good crowd, several Jeeps and trucks and full bellies by the end of the day.
Thank you to the AWE Arc Board of Directors who volunteered their time to cook and sell food, and to Orlando who provided the music.
A very special thanks to Nikki Deloit for thinking about the Smith Center for this event. ~You are A TRUE ADVOCATE & blessing to those we serve.~
We are so excited to work with this group again next year!
The YMCA kicks off another season out at the Field of Dreams this SATURDAY! Come out and watch some games. I promise, you will have a lot of fun!
Youth groups from First Baptist Church & Journey Church in Prattville came to the Smith Center to help with landscaping and clearing out trash from the back of our building. These kids were full of energy and eager to help in any way they could! Thank you so much for offering up your beautiful Saturday to help us!
The Lions Club is an organization that has supported AWE/ Arc for many, many years. These ladies and gentlemen are so kind and caring, always asking about ways they can support the people in this agency. I personally always look forward to their upbeat spirits and fellowship!
This year the Lions sponsored a citizen from Prattville, Gladys Allen, who will be attending Camp ASCCA this Summer!
Thanks so much for inviting me to your meeting as a guest speaker and allowing me to share our story!
Thank you to the Prattville Civitan Club for a wonderful lunch, gifts and holiday celebration! You all are truly a blessing to those we support! Also, thank you to Karen Tucker & Crew for catering the Smith Center Christmas lunch and bringing gifts! Everyone loved the food & fellowship. A special thanks to Madison, Lauren, Kristen & Tara Chambliss for surprising the staff with gifts today. That was so kind of you! Thank you to Sgt. Skip Tallmage and Lt. Ray Wagner for bringing gifts and the best Santa ever!
Merry Christmas to you all!
Alice and Kearra pose for a mid-day selfie for the website, "just because." You can feel the Christmas spirit in this place. What a wonderful time of year!
