This year Easter was a little different for everyone. Most of us were unable to celebrate with our families or have those big Easter dinners. We celebrated it with our staff and youth. While social distancing posed a new obstacle, we were still able to get it done to show our staff and youth how much we care. A huge shout out to Mr. Cooley, who brought in his personal smoker and cooked BBQ chicken and ribs. The youth enjoyed Easter bags filled with candy.

We have had to improvise with the pandemic. Gardening can be a very therapeutic outlet, so some of our youth enjoyed planting flowers. We had several other activities for our youth to complete.
