Tonya and a group of members went to visit the Independence Center yesterday. Mike G recently got a job as a peer specialist with BJC. He had an appointment with HR to fill out some paperwork. The clubhouse volunteered to assist him in getting to St. Louis for the meeting with the HR rep. The HR rep agreed to meet with Mike at the Independence Center. The rest of the group joined in the work ordered day at Independence Center and then had lunch in the Cafeteria. The group that went shared that they had a good time and learned more about the work ordered day. When they group got back to town they went to the restaurant supply store. We have ordered some new supplies for the clubhouse and needed to check on the status of our order. Tonya accompanied a couple of members to Schnucks for some community needs at the end of the day and then made sure they got home. The annual Christmas party is later this week. We will let you know how it goes.

On Saturday December the 13th I was one of the fortunate clubhouse members that went to see the Nutcracker. It was my very first time to see a play and had a very pleasant time with the other members. The play was very entertaining. The music was wonderful and the costumes were colorful and bright. It was a rare chance for the members and staff to spend time together on a Saturday. We had great seats in the first and second row. It was truly a beautiful experience. All of the dancers and performers were very entertaining. I believe that I speak for all of us when I say that we had a very enjoyable time.

The clubhouse helps me in a great many ways. I have a lot of friends and really enjoy coming to visit them. It helps my self esteem a whole lot. I enjoy working with others and doing clubhouse jobs. I really enjoy the outings we do!
