The Outer Banks Community Foundation has awarded a grant to GEM Adult Day Services,
Inc. for Art at the Park a unique program developed by Gail Sonnesso, GEM executive
director. Over the course of a year GEM will provide educational programs at our local parks and refuges. These programs will include a guided tour of the park, a craft related to the park, refreshments and live music.
Our program is open to all seniors, their families and community friends. GEM programs provide a safe and nurturing environment with many opportunities to make new friends and enjoy our delightful parks.
We are very grateful to the Outer Banks Community Foundation for making this program possible. We welcome volunteers and are hoping to connect with some local artists to enhance our art projects. Each volunteer will receive complimentary training in Best Practices in Care. We are very grateful to the Outer Banks Community Foundation’s support for Art at the Park and look forward to a year full of learning and creativity.
