ADVANCE Rec had a Soup-er Bowl contest the last few weeks in January. The location that brought in the most cans of soup would win a pizza party for the Super Bowl! It was a big hit, we raised over 876 cans of soup! It was such a close race but the overall winners were Mustang Pass! Due to the fact that it was such a close race we did decide to give the 2nd place team a pizza party too, Congrats to 717! Here is a picture of representatives from each of the winning locations presenting the donation to Brookings Harvest Table.
ADVANCE hosted a Baked Potato Fundraiser to help the Brookings Humane Society. We had a WONDERFUL turnout and were able to give $564 to the Humane Society! Check out the pictures of Myrtle & Mindy presenting them with the check.
This year everyone was in it to win it! From everyone watching to make sure no one overstepped the line to lots of fun competitive challenges, turkey bowling was a blast! Congrats to our winners- First place get turkeys & 2nd & 3rd receive pies!
Our winners this year were:
1st place- Geoffrey, Jen & Bill
2nd place- Becky, Jen & Mike
3rd place- Katie, Nancy & Doug
The Fall Festival was a big hit once again! Everyone was excited to dress up and show their favorite costumes & get some pizza to kick if all off! Bingo was of course the usual crowd favorite with hosts Justin & Matt calling & giving prizes. The cupcake walk was a sweet treat to stop by and have a dessert. DJ Drew was filling in for our usual DJ this year and he made sure that we had a great mix of music for those that wanted to dance. Lynn, Pat, Morgan & Evelyn held down the Voc floor and helped everyone get their pictures taken at the photo booth, pumpkin bowl or pumpkin golf. The Rec Committee had a tough time picking winners of the costume and decided that : Jen in her Panda Costume, Tom as Otto & Courtney with her hotdog costume got the prizes. Once again we had a great Fall Festival and look forward to doing it again next year!
The YAT Room, along with the help of the Milbank School and all of you, was able to complete 13 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child!!! We are so proud of them!!! A HUGE thank you to all who helped us out with donations of items, shoeboxes and money. If you still have items you already bought, there is plenty of room in the boxes so feel free to bring them by YAT today. We are bringing them to the church first thing Monday morning.
Great job YAT ROOM!!!!!!
Homeward Bound: Hobo Day 2017. ADVANCE went with a construction theme- it seems like this was the Brookings theme of the summer, so we added it to our Hobo Day Theme! What a beautiful, brisk morning it was, another great Hobo Day Parade. Check out some pictures from the fun:
Supported Living and ALA had a blast at Garth Brooks concert Saturday night!!! Amazing entertainer!! We had a blast.
A few years ago ADVANCE did a Where's Waldo theme and everyone had a blast finding Waldo and then submitting pictures.
Well Rec Committee has been asked several times to do this again. In honor of DSP Week we will be doing a Where's Brenna contest. Brenna Brown was last years Excellence in Service Winner so we went ahead and put her face on a Where's Waldo- doesn't she look great?!
All you need to do is find Brenna! Then take a picture and either send it to me or go ahead and send it out to the agency.
Brenna was found already this morning on the Voc floor.
Brenna was helping Karen T at work this morning!
Where will Brenna be next?!
