Building a Bridge picnic!

Fellowship, Friendship, FOOD!!!!! … so the invitation said, and … we did not promise too much.
What a wonderful afternoon we spent together; staff and residents of The Bridge, families, and friends gathered on a warm Sunday afternoon at our Belmont house for a picnic.

The weather was beautiful, though we were a little worried, as it had rained the day before and thunderstorms were on its way. The food was excellent; many people brought home made salads, cakes and other dishes to spoil the palate. Everyone seemed to enjoy meeting old friends and making new acquaintances. The musicians of the local group Pickin’ Shack (good friends of Dave) played for several hours. It was wonderful! Thanks so much to them for their support and friendship.

Brett Leake , motivational speaker, comedian and friend entertained us with great jokes, funny and touching stories about his parents, and an important message: Persons with traumatic brain injuries are as important in our lives as we are in theirs! Thanks to Brett for an amazing performance and for being an advocate to our residents.

We thank everyone who helped and joined us that afternoon and thus contributed to making this a wonderful and memorable event.
