Creating solutions and changing lives is what we do at Easterseals. Join us and you too can make a difference and help people with disabilities achieve their goals! Volunteer your time and share your talents by serving on working committees that drive special events or on an Advisory Board or even the Board of Directors. We have events in all five divisions and can always use the energy of new members. Concerts, Walks, Galas, Golf Tournaments and more. Contact the division closest to you. The common focus is to make our community a better place to live by supporting those with disabilities and other special needs. So, can you spare an hour a week?

Big Uncle Day
Our residential clients were treated to a wonderful “Big Uncle Day” again this year! On the 1st Saturday of every June, the Venango County Fox and Coon Club sponsors a day of fishing, food and fun. A good time is always had by all, and this year was no exception.

There is always so much going on at Hamarville's Adult Day Services and Adult Day Care Programs, that we thought we would like to focus on them. So join us next month as we see what a normal week at the Adult Day Services Program looks like.
