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.
Seacrette NolanFriday, September 14, 2007 Alcoholism is a disease. Many people don't have enough knowdledge about it to see it that way...instead they see it as a self-inflicted burden. People who don't have the understanding of the addiction tend to look down on others for this disease, because perhaps they think it is the choice of the alcoholic to have a drinking problem or not. It's not that simple, to just "not drink". That doesn't solve the problem. It is, however, the alcoholic's responsibility to get help.
Some people have more of an addictive nature than others. Alcoholism is hereditary; passed on from generation to generation, much like heart disease. Alcholics suffer from an actual change in chemicals in their brain (like other addicts). It changes the way a person behaves, thinks, and reacts to situations...even when they are sober. It takes a while for the recovering alcoholic to obtain sane, healthy thinking. And even then they continue to battle cravings, urges and relapses.
There are various extremes of alcoholism, which seems to depend on how long an individual lets the disease control their life. The effects of it varies from person to person, because everyone is different as human beings to a certain extent. However, the problem for all alcholics is one in the same. They have an addiction....
