For the past few months NSSA Adult Clients have been experiencing new activities thanks to a grant received from The Jack Fanning Memorial Foundation. NSSA has been offering more opportunities for enriching instruction in areas such as music, yoga, bowling, cooking, painting, horseback riding and more. Activities such as these help broaden the interests and skill development for our clients and help them to lead fulfilling lives.
On October 22, several groups of adult clients went to Bake Me a Cake Boutique for a step-by-step cake decorating class. They each had their own personal-sized cakes to decorate. They cut and shaped their cakes, rolled out fondant, cut out different shapes, and applied all the pieces to turn their plain cake into a whimsical rainbow fish. Tiny bites of sweet fondant may or may not have been taken throughout the class! At the end, the cakes were placed carefully into bakery boxes to be taken home to their families.
We can’t wait to see where NSSA adults go next!
NSSA’s Adult Clients have many jobs in the community, practicing vocational integration and skill development.
Yesterday a team was at Ruby Tuesday’s for the “Weekly Sparkle,” where they take the chairs down off the tables, remove all the tabletop items, spray and wipe down tables, then reset the tables with menus, napkins, condiments, etc.
M. takes chairs off tables.
A. & M. spray and wipe tables clean.
M. puts all the items neatly back in place on the tables….
…and then surveys a job well done.
