Success… 450 from the CAP community gather to celebrate!
CAP has a tradition of regularly creating a time and place to come together – children, adults, families, staff, providers, Board and Committee members, and community friends – to celebrate and enjoy the relationships, connections and successes experienced by all along the way.
This year June 21st produced dry sunny weather and an energetic buzz as about 450 of us gathered at the Pittsford Recreation area to visit, catch-up with friends, play games, swim, and enjoy lunch. It was a spectacular event for the very young to the fairly mature. Frisbee Golf, games of skill (and a little luck), face painting, a miniature horse, live music, and giant bubbles made for an afternoon of fun and frolic! A barbeque by Keith’s of Brandon kept the hunger pains away and ice cream donated by Stewart’s, along with a cotton candy machine in constant motion, kept sweet tooth’s satisfied!
Many, many thanks to the committee responsible for putting together this well-attended event, to the gentlemen who parked cars, and to the folks who helped serve salads, burgers, dogs, drinks, and ice cream to so many people.
It was a fantastic day! We’re already looking
forward to next year!Our Mission is to enhance the well-being of our communities, individuals and families through responsive, innovative and collaborative human services.

Alcohol is Everywhere

Colm Clarke

Friday, September 14, 2007 We have all achieved many things in our life. Whether your a child or enjoying your golden years, I've no doubt you have achieved alot over your life. Alcohol is everywhere. There are more and more off-licences, pubs, restaurants, hotels and supermarkets selling one of the most devastating "drug" ever known to man than ever before. Binge drinking is on the increase across globe. In particular, binge drinking amoung teenagers in Ireland and Great Britain has reached a crisis level and as a result it is having a very negative effect on the education system and public order. If you begin to drink too much or use it as a cruch to reduce fear or anxiety in awkward situations it will greatly increase your chances of developing alcoholism. The chances of developing alcoholism is greatly increased if you drink alot over a period of time, on most nights (or days) a week, drinking the next day to cure a hang over, drinking to relieve depression or anxiety or panic attacks and mixing alcohol with tranquilizers or "street drugs".

You find that when you decide to go for 2 or 3 drinks that you end up drinking more, being unable to stop, having blackouts regularly, getting into all sorts of trouble. One minute you maybe out drinking and quite intoxicated and the next thing you notice is that you wake up in a police cell, or in a hedge by the road, or casualty, or by the sea shore etc etc and you have no idea in the world how you ended up there. This is a very sure indication that you are drinking far too much. You may have experienced one or more black-outs over the course of your drinking. It is the body's way of telling you that something is wrong. It's probably the most important warning sign that you will get. It is crazy and frightening to hear youngsters condoning it, "I was out of it last night, don't remember a thing, it was great crack!". If you think that drinking yourself into oblivion or not remembering anything is great fun you would want to seriously start confronting your drinking problem.

If you suffer from depression or are lonely, grieving, being bullied, experiencing suicidal thoughts or if there are sexual issues, drinking alcohol will only make all these things worse. Okay, you might think that you are happy for a few hours but it is a well known fact that alcohol is a depressant and it will only make matters worse. It is so important to know that. Initially, alcohol will make you more talkative, relaxed and maybe a bit hyper and energetic. Alcohol removes inhibitions, like when you go out to a club you feel all tensed up first and after a few drinks you dont care what anyone thinks, after a good few more you end up making a complete idiot of yourself and maybe ending up fightening or doing something that you will regret. No one wants that. Your worth more than that! Never give alcohol a chance to abuse you because that is exactly what it wi...
