February 28th, known as the last day of the shortest month of the year, was a day of firsts for our friend Froim.
Froim has never had a paid job in the community. It was an exciting day for all.
In addition to touring his new workplace at The Paul Bunyan Thrift Shop and Furniture Annex, Froim was introduced to his coworkers, supervisors, and job coaches. He also learned how to punch his time card at the digital time clock. He learned what his work responsibilities are, and he showed everyone what good work is capable of doing. Froim will be working in the back of the shop, processing hangers and bags for the store.
If you see Froim, please say hello and congratulate him on his new job. It was a beautiful and successful first day!
Spring is so close; I can smell it, and see it!
All of the rain we have enjoyed here in Northern California this year has brought with it the promise of vigorous growth for all living things as our seasons begin to change: plants, animals, people… you name it.
Check out the beautiful colors of the lovely Spinach and Berry Salad that Rachelle prepared during her cooking class. It has all the elements of a healthy meal: deep green, calcium and Vitamin B-rich spinach; bright colorful berries that are not only gorgeous but high in Vitamin C, antioxidants, and fiber; and almonds which contain protein, fiber, magnesium, and Vitamin E. I see Spring!
On that note, don’t forget to spring forward on Sunday March 12th, and get ready to celebrate the first day of spring on March 20th.
