Smiles and laughter were in the air on February 4 as the EventPath committee held their first social event of the year for Gatepath participants at the Learning and Employment Campus located on Stanton Road in Burlingame.
The social event was a great success — friends enjoyed dinner together, reconnected, and took photos at the “photo booth” courtesy of resident photographer and EventPath committee member, Carol Windsor. Many of the participants were decked out in red, and one young man was dressed to impress in his suit and tie! There was an exceptional performance by the Special Needs Drum Line, which consists of young adults who attend Gatepath and other programs throughout San Mateo County; the evening culminated in – you guessed it – a great dance party.
The smiles on the participant’s faces provide memories that will never fade and are a true testament to the important work we all do every day to create a world where people of all abilities are fully included, respected and valued. Thank you to the EventPath parent volunteers who plan the parties and to the Auxiliary for supporting the events this past year
