Welcome to Sparc
Halloween Car Parade at The Village
Friday, October 16, 2020 | 6pm
Join Sparc for a Halloween-themed car parade to treat Village residents to some Halloween fun. Wear your favorite costumes and bring some fun decorations for your car!
Sparc members will meet in a parking lot adjacent to The Village to decorate cars. From there, we will do three loops around the community. Residents will be in costumes in front of their apartments for the parade.
Please RSVP by Tuesday, October 13th. Details will be sent prior to the event.
Thinking of You Cards
Our participants can’t wait to hear from you!
The quarantine and stay-at-home orders have been tough for all of us, but for many individuals with intellectual and developmental differences, this time is especially hard and isolating. Programs like the ones we offer, are the only time that many of these individuals interact with others. A card from you would mean the world.
Each month we send 260 activity packets to our day program individuals and would love to include your “thinking of you” cards to brighten their day. These cards will be included in each month’s activity packets. These cards can be handmade, store-bought, designed online and printed – wherever your creativity takes you! No matter what you do, your card will be appreciated more than you know!
We know it can be hard to know what to write in a card – messages can be as simple as:
- I hope you’re staying safe
- Thinking of you and wishing you well
