A Grape Time Was Had by All at NSSA’s 21st Annual Wine Tasting

i Nov 13th No Comments by

Saturday, November 2 was a glorious, crisp fall day and friends and families gathered at the beautifully-decorated Garden City Country Club for NSSA’s 21st Annual Wine Tasting.

This event is a favorite with its casual atmosphere, wide array of wines to sample, delicious passed hors d’oeuvres and lavish buffet, many opportunities to win wonderful prizes and a chance to catch up with good friends.

The delicious wines were generously donated by Fidele Miranda and Empire Merchants. Thank you Fidele and Empire for supporting our event for 21 years!

The event is such a success thanks in great part to Champagne Event Sponsors, Mary Beth and Pat Miranda, who do so much for NSSA year after year.

We are especially grateful to guests whose generous donations raised the money for us to purchase a new agency-wide communication system, which will help keep students and clients safe throughout our buildings and in the community.

Bracelets hand-made by NSSA’s Adult Clients, for sale at the money booth, were the hit of the evening! Framed photographs taken by NSSA’s Camera Club were offered in the Silent Auction and are now gracing the walls of some of our guests’ homes.

Thanks to Rob and Laurie Rogers of Tobay Printing for their ongoing support of NSSA and for printing our beautiful event journal.

We have so much gratitude for everyone who attended, donated, volunteered and worked so hard to make this year’s Wine Tasting a success.

Special thanks go to our generous sponsors: 

Thank you, everyone!

Happy Howl’o’Ween from NSSA!

Halloween 2019 was a blustery day, but inside NSSA it was bright and cheery with laughter and fun! The day began with the annual staff Halloween costume contest – all the costumes were clever and everyone looked great!

The school Halloween party started mid-morning in the gym, with Classroom 4’s older students manning the activity stations and helping the younger students make crafts and play games.

  

Seeing the students in their Halloween costumes is a joy that we all look forward to every year.

   

Hope you had a fun Halloween!
