December Newsletter

November here at Branches:

November was a great month here at Branches!

November was a great month here at Branches! We all went to the “Mud Oven” field trip and  made a gift for our friends or family.  We will be sending them home within the next week wrapped and labeled for the person we are giving them too.  We had a great time building our “Log Drivers Waltz” float for the parade and thanks a bunch to those of you who helped with the float and/or rode the float with us. It was a great time!

Group one welcomed a new staff in their group, Jen! As well as worked on holiday decorations, baking, going swimming and out for walks and to the mud oven.

Group two also worked on holiday decorating, went to the movies, shopped for parade items and did lots of crafts.

Group three had a great month and helped a great deal with getting ready for the parade. They went to the mud oven and took lots of bus rides. They went swimming and bowling and worked on making duct tape wallets with personalized emblums on them to represent their personalities.
