@The festivities begin at 1 p.m. with opening remarks by invited guests followed by a balloon launch high above the city. The balloons launched by family members will represent the present and past participants from over the last 25 years says Michelle Silliman, program manager. All families whose loved ones participated in the program are encouraged to join in the celebration to honor or memorialize their family member.
@The program serves consumers ages 55 and older, who are physically or socially impaired, mentally confused or in need of supervision throughout the day. Caregivers benefit by being able to continue to work, receive time for themselves or by relieving them of the responsibility of providing total care for their loved one.
@Tours of the facility will be offered and refreshments will be served.
