Each year Lighthouse Autism Center hosts a company Holiday Party where employees from all four locations can come together for a night of fun and camaraderie. Staff are each invited to bring a dish for a potluck/family style type dinner. Music plays, gifts are given, and all employees are recognized with a gift from Lighthouse. Perhaps the most anticipated part of the evening is when we do the family readings. Prior to the party, we invite parents to send in a letter telling us how LAC has impacted not only the life of their child but of their entire family. We then choose several of these letters to read to all guests at the parties. It is a time for us to truly reflect on the good work of our employees and the deep impact they have on the families we assist. We would like to thank the Oaks at SouthPaw Farms for helping us to host a wonderful event, as well as all of those who made it possible. We are already looking forward to the party next year!
