Ishita, Glen, Andre and Robert of our Queens South Community Service Center spent the day at the Museum of Modern Art visiting current exhibitions. A fave? The new (and first) US retrospective of work by visionary artist Bodys Isek Kingelez called City Dreams - especially his most ambitious and very colorful sculpture Ville Fantôme!
Lifespire’s Sunset Park II Community Service Center (with friends from our Michael Rappaport Comprehensive Service Center) recently attended the Staten Island Yankees v. the Lowell Spinners baseball game at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark! While our beloved Yanks did not win the game, they held off the Spinners until a wild 10th inning! Not only did we have a great time, but also several of our attendees caught t-shirts thrown to the crowd by the baseball players. We also got a shout-out from the ballpark and featured on the live screen! Special thanks to Jesse Lopresti and the Staten Island Yankees Organization for being so welcoming to us!
Lifespire’s Queens South Comprehensive Services Center took a nostalgic trip back to the Roaring ‘20s, transforming the Center into The Great Gatsby Ballroom. The Flappers and Gents brought the era back to life on both the runway and dance floor!
This spring the Sam Tocker Comprehensive Services Center presented its first annual Gospel Fest. The event came from the participants in the Sam Tocker’s self-advocacy group.
The Gospel Fest was well attended with participants from other Lifespire programs and family members. Congratulations to all or our singers!
