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.
Facts about Alcohol
Facts About Alcohol
Aldo BonincontroFriday, September 14, 2007 The excess of alcoholic drinking makes persons addicted as for cocaine, heroine, LSD, etc., althouch alcohol typically becomes a drug only when we exceed a certain daily amount.
Alcohol creates a physical and psichological dependance, and a progressive degradation in all the aspects of life.
The first consequence is the typical confusional state typical of drunk people, that slowly becomes a constant in the addicted life, leading to dementia.
Then, the addicted becomes more and more closed in him/herself neglecting personal care, social relations and work, losing the normal inhibitions to keep the self-control.
The other main victim of alcoholism is liver; it tries to metabolize it, but invain, given the great amount of alcohol to face. The degradation process, infact, produces its oxidation to acetic aldeyde,(CH3-CH=O) and acetic acid (CH3-COOH) more harmful than ethylic alcohol.
This continuous stress logorates liver cells making them die and be replaced by fibrous cells. So, liver goes towards the cirrhosis that causes death.
Alcoholism also causes a precocious ageing and a weakening of many organic functions as blood circulation, digestion and the immune system.
Alcoholism is a great social problem in many Countries, expecially in Northern Europe and North America, where the frequent depressing insulation caused by long and cold winters are a greater temptation to give to the bottle.
