Celebrating the Holidays
More than 350 people who work and receive supports at the Merakey AVS Zapp and Kennedy Centers celebrated the holidays at their annual Christmas party at the Sheraton Moon Township. Music was provided by Merakey’s Supervisor of Employment Services DJ Joe Ledrick. Everyone was dressed in holiday attire and enjoyed dancing, socializing and a lunch served by Merakey employees. While Santa visited with each individual, the Grinch arrived to try to spoil the fun…but he was no match for Santa who presented personalized gifts to each attendee. Many attendees even brought letters to hand-deliver to Santa.
“We sincerely appreciate the many employees from numerous departments - including Program, Psychology, Social Services, Staff Development, Medical and Residential - who came together to support this wonderful holiday event,” commented Program Director Jan Harvilla.
