       In Loving Memory
We have lost two wonderful friends of The Arc since our last edition of The ArcHive Buzz. Joe Capote (pictured in black shirt and white shorts), father of "P.J. the D.J"., husband of staff member Gail Capote and long time volunteer, passed away on April 3rd.
On April 19, we lost long-time resident Edward "Eddie" Tomczyk. Eddie lived in our Pasco County residential programs for more than 37 years. They will both be greatly missed by all of us.
We were extremely fortunate to have CEMEX visit our Neff Lake Road Campus in Brooksville recently for a day of service and giving.  We welcomed a group of  managers from all over the southeastern United States early one morning last month. After a short tour and history of our facility, they began to work on sprucing up our sensory garden. They weeded, raked, assembled benches and cleared the entire garden area. They planted roses and other plants, provided a new lighted fountain and mulch and truly made the once overgrown and rundown sensory garden a delightful place to spend time! 
We are so  grateful for CEMEX and all that you do for us and the entire community! 

Get Ready to Tame the Neff Lake Monster!

The Spring Lake Memorial Classic is located in scenic eastern Hernando County, Florida. But don't let the majestic trees and peaceful setting fool you - these are some of the toughest hills in Florida! All three courses take participants over a variety of terrains; from asphalt to a nature trail through woods, through a horse barn and up and down some very challenging hills! Proceeds from this event support individuals with intellectual & developmental disabilities.
