We have decided to partner with A Mother's Rest to offer low cost or FREE respite weekends for moms and dads of special needs children. One group of women enjoyed a weekend away in January and a second group came this last weekend in February.

All of these lovely women had time to encourage one another in the difficult task they share. They also enjoyed 30 minute massages, dinners at some of our landmark restaurants, sleeping in, followed by a relaxing breakfast.


As a special treat, we were blessed to actually meet and serve the founder of this organization, Andrea Faris Roberts, who is herself a mom of an extra needs child.

We already have Father's Day weekend set aside for a group of dads! We are excited to help them rest and then get out and have some fun visiting Cooperstown, the Adirondacks or getting out on the town in Utica. Maybe they would enjoy a round of golf at Valley View, a game or concert at the Utica Aud or a relaxing stroll through the Munson Williams Proctor Art Institute?
