We have so much going on in June.We have the Isabella retreat as well as many other things. Wow I’m really poopedout from May is Mental Health. The month was packed with things to do. We hadgames day with Will., a movie day sponsored by the Housing Department. Then wehad the Day of Hope luncheon. We had Jim C come back and join us like old times.Then there was the poetry contest, the art show at both Shoreline and here. Wehad a cook out at Shoreline and the luncheon at the armory to close up thecelebration. I never thought we could do so much. I want to thank all the staff whoput so much into making all these things happen. It means so much to all theconsumers at both locations. I encourage you all to come and get involved in allthe fun.

FROM THE DESK OF THE CLUB SECRETARY BY
SYLVIA H.
 Yahoo, summer is here ! I love the beginning of June. May was a greatmonth. To celebrate May is Mental Health we had a movie day sponsored bythe housing department it was a perfect day for a movie (rainy). We sawthe movie Silver linings. Thanks housing dept. for a great choice. We alsohad a number of other things going on too. We picked the people going toIsabella Freeman. Kudos's to the lucky one’s picked. We also had the artshow, the luncheon at the Armory (which went really well). The "Day of Hope” poetry contest. This year topic was “inspiration” and all the poemswere very moving. So the busy month of May is behind us now and we canlook forward to planning for the summer. Hopefully you’ll all come in and join the fun. Oh yeah, I almost forgot I want to thank the Bran-ford for hosting the picnic last month. It was a good time sharedby all. Have a great summer and I hope to you all soon.

VOLUME 1, ISSUE 1
On May 31, 2013, Gail Green Singleton will be retiring from BHcare after over 14 years of dedicated service. Gail was first hired as the Rehabilitation Services Director, thenbecame the Recovery Services Director and at the time of the merger was appointedDirector of Recovery Services. First and foremost Gail is known as the “go-to person” when developing recovery oriented interventions with the people we serve. Over the past14 years, Gail has earned the respect of people in recovery, her staff, her peers, hersuperiors and our funding sources. Always known for her creativity, some of heraccomplishments include the “Time Dollar” program that was popular at the Club for sometime as well as Compeer, The Peer/Family Advisory Council, the Pink Ladies, and the SoupGroup. The annual retreats for club members, first to Gould Farm, then IsabellaFreedman, were also facilitated by her. Gail was instrumental in starting our PeerEngagement program and the new Supportive Housing program and developing anexcellent collaboration with Home Inc.Her most significant contribution was setting the standard as to how people we serveshould be treated. No matter what the circumstances, Gail always treated those we servewith dignity, respect and kindness. This was a reflection of her genuine belief thateveryone can make a better life for themselves no matter what obstacles may be in theway. She assisted people in gaining more confidence, taking chances and opening newdoors, always thinking “outside the box.” Gail is more than an advocate for the people weserve, she helped in giving people the skills to advocate for themselves and be proud of the outcomes. Gail will be missed, but we wish her all the best - lots of travel and timewith family and friends.
