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!
The Queens Council on Developmental Disabilities hosts an annual Celebrating Success which acknowledges the individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities in their achievements in one of three categories including success in supported work and day programs. Three nominees who received awards are near and dear to us – Yolanda Archer, Michael McDermott and Yoharmelin Reynoso. Pictured above are Yoharmelin with her parents as well as Lifespire Employment Retention Specialist Zain Lafeuillee and Queens South Facility Director Iris Candelario.
Lifespire Rocks! Project
Several of Lifespire’s residences have launched the “Lifespire Rocks! Project” - you might be one of the fortunate community members who found one of our painted rocks hidden in parks and other public spaces. Make sure to upload a pic to Instagram and tag your find with the hashtag #LifespireRocks
