On Tuesday April 30, 2013, the Trips Ahoy Foundation held their bowling banquet to end the 2012-2013 season. The banquet was held at Crest Lanes where the bowlers congregated each week on a Tuesday evening starting at 6 pm. Approximately 45 individuals attended to salute the bowlers and their accomplishments for this, their sixth year of bowling. The league is called the “Smashers” and is open to any individual who is interested in bowling. The bowlers usually play 2 games each night for the season and have the opportunity to enhance their skills and socialize. Congratulations and thank you to Cathy Brooks and Belinda Sweeney for managing the bowling league and making sure that everything ran smoothly, including the banquet. We look forward to starting up for the 7th season in the Fall of 2013. Anyone interested in participating should keep an eye on our website starting in September.Read More

At the request of our “chefs” from last month who wanted a pasta dish, this month’s class will make Pasta Carbonara. The ingredients for this dish are pretty typical: fettuccine, bacon, milk, grated parmesan cheese, and garlic, however we will not be using uncooked eggs which many recipes call for. We will be using cream cheese instead. Along with the pasta our cooks will learn how to make another delicious and healthy salad. The class is on March 21, 2013 from 4 pm until 6 pm. The cost is $5 which covers the cost of all ingredients and supplies. When the meal is complete everyone will have a chance to sit, socialize, and enjoy the meal. Spaces are limited so call (330)392-6006 to reserve your spot.Read More
Our day program in Trumbull county is accepting applications. The program is person centered; we look at each individual in attendance and base programming on their needs and wants. Our main goal is to teach skills that promote independence and community integration. We do this through training in activities of daily living, vocational and habilitation training, fine and gross motor skills and sensory training, to name a few. The move to our new location at the start of 2013 gives even more opportunity–with more space to grow and the addition of a commercial kitchen. We also have opportunities for individuals to work in the community through involvement in our store, Its All Fine, and a cleaning crew. We are also very excited for our new sensory room. There are many individuals who need sensory training. Over stimulation may cause anxiety and frustration which can lead to aggressive behaviors. We have created an area that is relaxing and offers controlled stimulation—sight, sound, motion, touch—to help individuals better process and handle sensory information. This in turn leads to less anxiety and a healthier, happier life plus ongoing learning. If you would like to learn more about our Day Program and/or schedule a tour please contact Megan Sweeney at (330)392-6006.Read More
