Day Habilitation Group Visits Corning Glass Center

On Thursday September 25th 2014 the Day Habilitation Program went on a Day Trip to the Corning Glass Center.   The group did several fundraisers including a Duck Race sponsored by Wildwood Lake KOA campground in Medina.   They also received a donation from NYSCOPBA local sector Orleans Correctional Facility in Albion NY and NYSARC Trust Recreation Grant funds were utilized to ensure this trip took place. This was a great opportunity for the folks in the program.   They enjoyed a glass making class and all were able to make a glass flower to take home.   This opportunity will be remembered and talked about for years to come.
