Giving Back

The team at Special Tree is proud to help support our local communities.  To help schools in the local community, Riverview Residential Program Manager Debbie Justice and client Adam dropped off two backpacks full of donated school supplies to Riverview School District’s Huntington Elementary and Seitz Middle School.  Debbie and Adam even ran into an old Riverview neighbor who works in the middle school office!  The schools’ principals were very grateful for the donation and Debbie plans to stay in touch with both schools to help support students throughout the year.  A special thanks to Riverview Rehabilitation Service Technician, Darlene McCellen who donated a portion of the school supplies.

Reel TV

Outpatient client Carroll P. thought his fishing days were over after he sustained a spinal cord injury in 2008, but all that changed with some help from the "Fishing Doc." The Fishing Doc is a cool new adaptive fishing pole that Carroll recently tried out at a charity fishing tournament put on by bass pro Kevin Vandam and the Detroit Lions. Michigan Out of Doors TV, which airs on WTVS-TV, was at the event and filmed Carroll using the fishing pole which he maneuvered through the joy stick on his power chair. The event brought out some of the world’s greatest bass pros to fish alongside Lions players and sponsors at Kensington Metropark on June 12th.

Take Me Out To The Ballgame

We've finally made it, spring is here. And nothing welcomes longer days and warmer temperatures  like a trip to the ballpark. This past weekend clients Darin H., and Loren K., from Moravian West set out to Comerica Park to cheer on the Tiger's as they took on the Texas Rangers. The afternoon game came to a close with beautiful blue skies, smiles and a Tiger's victory, 3-2 over the Rangers.

Once a month, the Activities Team likes to do a larger outing with two or three clients. In honor of African American History Month, in February we decided to pay a visit to the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit.

A Memorable Day at The Museum

By: Jessica Bahny
NCC Activites Assistant

Well, the holiday season is officially behind us.  We’re into the New Year, and looking ahead to spring!  Technically, life is supposed to “slow down” a little bit for us all after that big holiday rush- not in the activity department!  We’re just as busy as ever!  This post, I really want to share some of the fantastic outings we’ve been doing here at NCC.  With the cooler weather, we’re pretty much restricted to indoor outings.  Sure, we love going to the park, fishing, the zoo and all of that good stuff- but when the air gets cold where can you go?  MUSEUMS!!!!
