Save the Date!
On Sunday, April 11th from 1-3 p.m. Passages will be holding their 5th Annual Alumni Celebration! This Ice Cream Social is being held in the New Visions Garden and is open to all former Passages residents and their immediate families as an opportunity to share their successes with other alumni and staff and to enjoy treats, games for kids, and prize give-aways. Department of Corrections' staff are encouraged to attend if you are working with any of the Alumni currently - it is a great way to support the accomplishments the women have made in their lives.
Questions regarding this event can be directed to Jan Begger, Passages Director, at 294-9609 ext. 211.
We look forward to seeing you there!
