Wednesday evening, March 30th, the Coronado/Mainland Shuffleboard Club and the SPARC participants held their last get-together of the year to give out achievement awards, eat hot dogs, celebrate a birthday and play shuffleboard one last time together. Emily Furano, after receiving a birthday present, celebrated her birthday by sharing cake and lemonade with her friends.
The CMS Club partnered with SPARC to help provide recreational and sporting activities in our nurturing social shuffleboard community for those participants with developmental disabilities. Shuffleboard’s organized activities help to foster individual potential, new friendships and minimize isolation. Our shuffleboard club has been sponsoring a program with SPARC, with CMS member Bill Boyes as its coordinator, for at least the past couple of years.
We would like to thank all the CMS Club SPARC volunteers, such as: Bill Boyes, Joan Best, Arden & Mary McConnell, Jerry Jabaut, Paul and Marguerite Fortier, Connie and Gerry Bousquet, Johnnie Conner and Betty Buccini, for their support and involvement.
We also appreciate the involvement and support from families and friends of the following participating members: Wayne Malcolm, Erick Harper, Sierra Harmer, Courtney Widdson, Ashton Tabor, Candi Smith, Emily Furrano and the three absent members, Evan Gorski, Tom Baker and Nate Urban. They all had a really good time and seemed to learn quite a lot about shuffleboard from the CMS Club workers who gave them friendship, guidance and support. We all look forward, once again, to our next season.
