We were excited to host our first Family Day of the year this month! The day centered around youth and their loved ones getting to connect through music, food, and fun activities. Several local and out of state families attended this inaugural event to spend time with us and their youth! Families enjoyed being introduced to our amazing team here at Bledsoe before enjoying a delicious home-made Italian lunch prepared by our amazing kitchen staff. 

Throughout the day, youth and their families participated in giveaways, guessing games, and yard game activities both against other families and staff. The weather was beautiful and everyone enjoyed getting to spend a day in the sunshine with each other. Activities included corn hole, raffles, ring toss, frisbee golf, giant Jenga, giant Connect Four, board games, basketball, and ladder ball, among other smaller activities! 

It was great seeing out youth connect with and spend time with their families, it was a great day for all involved!
