Keystone Participates in the 5th Annual Walk for Autism Awareness!
Consumers and Staff from Keystone Community Resources came together April 19 at Nay Aug Park for the fifth Annual Walk for Autism Awareness, a benefit event for the Parents Loving Children Through Autism Foundation.
The afternoon began as we joined the hundreds of families, friends and support groups gathering for the walk. Sunshine and mild spring temperatures formed a perfect setting in the park as music played from the pavilion and walkers put on their Autism Walk T-Shirts.
Among Keystone’s walkers were five young children with Autism with their Program Manager, Dave Yuschovitz and staff. Walking through the park hand-in-hand, the kids were greeted by classmates and several of their teachers from Jefferson School who were excited to see them.
A highlight of the day was the opportunity to see the Road Scholar Transport “Autism Speaks” truck. Driven by Scott Hartman, the husband of Faith Evans, coordinator of Financial Reporting, the “Autism Speaks” Truck highlights autism awareness for the advocacy organization Autism Speaks.
Special thanks to Rachel Simms, Human Resources Intern for organizing Keystone’s participation in the walk as well as the 40 staff and consumers from 5 community residences who attended!
Kathleen Walsh, a parent of a child living with Autism, founded Parents Loving Children through Autism Foundation in May 2002. The organization exists to provide emotional and educational support for families and friends of children with special needs and to support trips and activities where children with special needs are welcome. The annual Autism Walks began in 2004 as a way to increase awareness in the community and to raise funds for the foundation sponsored trips and events.

Keystone Celebrates Family Fun Day at Lahey Park!
Keystone celebrated our annual Family Fun Day on September 22, 2007 at Lahey Fun Center. Over 400 families attended! Miniature golf, an indoor play park, crafts, and face painting were just part of all the fun!
" I love getting to talk to people that I have not seen for such a long time......feels
like a family reunion" Barbara Jenkins points out about Family Fun Day. The day
provided an opportunity for staff, both new and old, to get to know each other.
But also an opportunity to get to know those that are special to us, our children, grandchildren and parents. The day was literally more like a family reunion than a company picnic, and it showed!
The event was planned by co-chairs, Lisa Cunningham and Gloria Lance and we would be remiss not to mention the great effort placed forward by committee members: Debbie Bacinelli, Laura Davis, Kim Price, Chris Roche-Shygelski, Annette Warnken and Pat Brokenshire. Without their expertise, the day would not have been as memorable.
