Party time!

Members from Silver Leaf Lodge Number 457 came out this weekend to throw a fabulous Back-to-School Party for our campus. Families from our Family Housing Program and students from Independent Living all came out to enjoy the hamburgers and hot dogs and just enjoy a great time together.

Silver Leaf Lodge brought everything for the party – the food, the grill, and all the supplies!

They even brought enough school supplies to give a bag-full to every family who came, as well as stocking UMCH’s supply closet for future families.

But the best part of the party in the eyes of our children was the BOUNCY HOUSE!

Not only did the group bring the party, but midway through the event, they surprised us with a $500 check from CF Property Management, as well as cash donations of over $100 they had collected from members in addition to all the school supplies. Wow!

We are grateful to Silver Leaf Lodge and all their friends and family who made the party a memorable day for our children and families!
