Andrea led a program during the Annual Meeting where she and two peers shared about their time at Stepping Stones.
Evan S. shared about his experiences in the Adult Day program at our BeauVita West location in Monfort Heights.
Sherri G. spoke about first coming to Stepping Stones at the age of 6 for swimming lessons. The classes helped strengthen her arms and legs and enabled her to walk. Today, she attends the Adult Day program at our Norwood location where she loves to engage in cooking and technology activities. She is also a gifted artist and has donated paintings to several local auctions, including Stepping Stones' Bloom gala.
Participants from all three Adult Day program locations participated in the day's festivities, including a group from Camp Allyn:

Every year, the annual meeting presents a staff member with the Cathy Borchers' Award to celebrate those who passionately support the agency's mission.
This year's award was presented by the late Cathy Borchers' son John Borchers, Jr. to Operational Support Manager Rosemary Bauer.
The annual meeting also honored John Mongelluzzo who was elected to Board President in 2016. John has been an instrumental voice in leading the agency's progression over the last three years - including the addition of two program locations. We thank him for his passionate service!
