To the Editor:
What a night May 11 was for over 100 individuals served through Emory Valley Center in its mission to enhance the lives of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities!
Maggie and Andy Owen, supported by many volunteers, led the charge to hold EVC’s second Prom, “An Evening with the Stars.” This year’s theme was a Hawaiian Luau, with decorations, food, and personal photos all relating to a fun adventure for our individuals.
The Y-12 National Security Complex graciously donated New Hope Center for our individuals to enjoy this evening in a way they had never experienced. Donations to underwrite costs by local businesses and private sponsors were greatly appreciated to make the evening possible. We are so fortunate to have the dedication of the Owen’s family and their circle of volunteers to help the Center further its quest for person-centered activities for those we are dedicated to support. Feel free to visit our website, www.emoryvalleycenter.com, to relive that night with photos, which I know will bring a smile to your face.
