CRSI provided the mainsta14-SEPTCook out Jamey  Charlesys, but the staff provided all the “delicious extras”, according to Sue Ulis, program administrator.

James Stachler (L), a consumer from Mercer Co. and a DJ for ‘Jamey’s Jams’ provided the music. Everyone had fun dancing to the Hokey Pokey and Sweet Caroline.  James is pictured visiting with Charles Knostman of Minster.

Madison Co.: A recent trip to Nashville won’t be forgotten anytime soon and eight 14Madison-group-Nashvilleconsumers and three support staff can’t wait to go back and see more.

The group got to see the Charlie Daniels Band, Little Big Town and Jeannie Seele at the Grand Ole Opry. They went on a back stage tour and stood in the performance circle where all the famous singers have performed over the years.

The group experienced much of Nashville’s other tourist attractions as well. They went on a dinner cruise on the General Jackson Showboat; took a three hour bus tour to see the “homes of stars”; went to the Ernest Tub Record Store, Willie Nelson Museum, Cooter’s Dukes of Hazard Museum, and to the Nashville Night Life Dinner Theatre. While at the Loveless Café, Debbie Morris’ Uncle Bill joined them for dinner.

The group also walked all around downtown Nashville and did a little old-fashioned window shopping. “They’re still talking about it”, says Amanda Davis, program specialist.

Put-in-Bay: Jason Fields of Fulton Co. and his home manager Bonnie Randolph getting that all important put-in-bay pizzarecently rode the Jet Express to Put-in-Bay Island for a late summer excursion. They enjoyed all the popular lake destination spot has to offer, including the wildflowers.

Jason is pictured with two of his favorites…pizza and Frosty Root Beer.

St. Marys: Labor Day weekend was a “splash” for two ladies from Auglaize County. Patty Conners (left) and Heather Myers had a great time cooling off at a splash park in Rockford, Ohio.
