Editor, Gateway Behavioral Health Services extends a sincere hand of appreciation to Royal Waffle King’s regional manger, Hinesville restaurant owner Charlie Krowder, manager Cheryl Hodges and all the staffers at the eatery for sponsoring a yard sale Oct. 12 and a customer-appreciation day Oct. 26.
These events included lots of free activities, including a bounce house, waffle- and hot-dog-eating contests, face painting and horse and pony rides. Throughout the day, 100 items were raffled off, food specials were available, and there were bake and craft sales.
The proceeds from the events benefitted Gateway Behavioral Health Services’ Liberty Developmental Disability Program. A total of $1,013 was raised for the DD training center. The funds will make leisure activities possible for the clients who attend the DD training center.
On Oct. 3, 25 clients visited the Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island. On Oct. 9, 46 clients went to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. Two chartered buses transported the visitors. Joyce Williams, a client’s mother, sponsored one of the buses.
Special thanks to Cheryl Hodges for her energy and enthusiasm, which contributed greatly to the success of these events.
