Friend of MILESTONE,
As Thanksgiving approaches, it’s the perfect time of year to extend my gratitude to the employees that
commit their lives to serving the intellectually and developmentally disabled individuals that we care for
and to the community that supports our mission.
The individuals served have had a great year in 2022. Special Olympics was back, many individuals were
able to attend camp in and out of state, our Scouts returned to Camp Lowden for an extended stay. We
celebrated Juneteenth, enjoyed a “Summer Bash” and spent a great deal of time back out in the
community. Our artisans participated in Cider & Cinnamon at Edgebrook mall and in ArtScene in
downtown Rockford, promoting their special art work.
We’ve truly been blessed. We have a core group of staff that will do whatever it takes to care for the
individuals we serve. We are supported by a community that faces its own challenges, but we are
continually amazed at the support we receive, financially and spiritually.
Thank you for your ongoing support. My best to you and your family this holiday season, and may you
have a safe and blessed 2023!
