and caring without restraint. It is always fun to talk to dedicated people in our field about the benefits of hiring the right staff and training them well. We all face similar challenges, and it is rewarding to work together for the greater good.
During the past month, the Arc of Delaware County took a pause and had the full team together for an afternoon of training. We celebrated new staff and team members who have been promoted and shared information so everyone has the tools they need to do their jobs best. We try to gather quarterly as a team, and it is always time well spent! Our Unifying Principles, the core values that have held The Arc of Delaware County together for over 3 decades, are tried and true. Some of the wording of those values is ready to be updated, so part of our recent staff meeting was working on wordsmithing the Unifying Principles. Watching the full Delarc team work together is always a delight, and this session was no different.
There are very exciting events coming up in Delaware County in the near future! Be sure to mark your calendar for a very special dance party for the community on December 1. This great party is brought to you by The Arc of Delaware County family and The Arc New York recreation grant funds. We are very excited to present to you the band, Flame, from The Arc Lexington, who spreads hope and inspiration through their music throughout the US and abroad! Let’s celebrate the holiday season with dancing, great times and refreshments!! Admission is free and we would love to have you! Join our mission to support people everywhere to living personally fulfilled lives and see the unlimited potential in all of us!
