Alternatives, one of Central Massachusetts’ leading human service providers will be hosting a Meet & Greet to mark the kickoff of its new initiative, Club 21 Blackstone Valley. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, February 12, 2014 in the Heritage Gallery at Alternatives, 50 Douglas Road, Whitinsville, MA.
Club 21 Blackstone Valley is a social club whose members include adults with developmental disabilities served by Alternatives partnered with people from the general community. The program is funded by the Real Friends Project.
Partners, who are matched around common interests, meet twice a month – once with their partner and once with other club members in a small group or with the whole club – to enjoy activities such as picnics, watching sporting events, attending a play or movie, or sharing a hobby. The Club Coordinator is available to help plan activities and Club membership only requires a 5-hour/month commitment.
Club 21 provides an opportunity to meet new people, build friendships and explore what the community has to offer. It’s a chance to make a real difference in the life of someone with a disability while having fun in the process.
Community members and people served by Alternatives are welcome to stop by on Wednesday, February 12th between 6:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. to find out more about Club 21 Blackstone Valley. Light refreshments will be served.
