Our 1st Annual Open House was a huge success! There were too many visitors to get a head count, but we’ve been assured that all those in attendance had a great time. We want to give a special thank you to the Knights of Columbus of Kimberling City for splitting the cost of the Tumblers that each member received, as well as for providing a Santa for the big day. (Many of the Knights pitched in to help in other ways where there was a need, such as stirring hot cocoa!) We also want to thank the Stone County Developmental Disability Board for sharing this event with us. They provided a great lunch and had many resources on hand to share with our members. They also shared the cost of the Tumblers with us. Other contributors to our big day were Table Rock True Value and Journagan True value by donating the lumber needed to build our new stage, as well as the Table Rock Lake Rotary Club who donated the rest of the money needed to put flooring on the stage and buy a Karaoke Machine!
We can’t forget that Branson West Marine and Powersports let us ride in one of their beautiful pontoon boats during the Kimberling City Christmas parade, which was held just before our Open House.
So many people helped make December 1 a success and we are truly thankful for them and all of our CHANCES family members!
