AVS Western Division's Consumer Advocacy Group Picnic in the Park
On July 19, the Consumer Advocacy Groups of Merakey AVS Western Division held a picnic at McDanels Boat Launch at Moraine State Park. Attendees came from Kennedy, Slippery Rock and Zapp Program Centers, Pittsburgh and Patricia Hillman Miller Campuses. Many people took advantage of the beautiful day and spent the afternoon fishing on the lake. Luckily, the fish were biting, and several people made a catch. Some individuals participated in games such as bean bag toss, lawn bowling, and ladder golf. The highlight of the picnic was the “Tony Tunes” sing along concert led by Program Aide Tony Bellassai. Everyone was given the opportunity to sing or play an instrument.
The group enjoyed a huge picnic lunch. Throughout the day, people stopped at the Snow Cone Tent for a cool treat to beat the heat. Members of the Advocacy Groups had a wonderful time seeing old friends and meeting new people. Everyone commented on the beautiful weather and how they couldn’t wait to get together again.
