Hello SSSRA Friends!

Summer is almost here! We have been making plans to bring oodles of fun in 2021.

We’re looking forward to sunny days, warm breezes, smiling faces, and laughter all around. SSSRA has a great line-up of in-person programs and special events that focus on wellness and safety, but if you’re more comfortable with a virtual program line-up, we have that for you too. Visit our website for our summer program opportunities.

If you haven’t heard the news by now, SSSRA has a new logo! We asked our participants, families, staff, and board of directors to describe SSSRA in three words. Fun, caring, and social were the most common themes. The shapes of the logo symbolize coming together and forming a connection. Blue is refreshing, friendly, and calming. Orange is vibrant, energetic, and fun. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Our Capital Improvement Plan will be implemented this summer to replace the parking lot at the SSSRA Administrative Office. So please pardon our dust during the completion of this project.

This past year has been challenging for all of us. Just think about it for a moment. For us not so techy people, we sure have come a long way in technology. I never thought the words Zoom, Google Meets, and GoToMeeting would be a staple in my vocabulary, but here I am wondering which platform will I be using today! I’m proud of us, all of us, for thinking outside the box, and overcoming our fears of technology so that we may continue to socialize safely in an unsafe situation.

On behalf of the staff and board of directors, we thank you for your continued support of SSSRA. We are excited to return to fun and seeing you soon.
