The agency will have an exclusive sundae bar for its donors from 6:30 to 7 p.m. Associate director will be giving a speech regarding how the donors from Partners in Possibilities have helped Mosaic make a difference in the lives of the individuals it serves.
The sundae bar is in appreciation of the donations, and at 7 p.m., the individuals in service, staff and the community will join in an evening of swimming, free of cost, as well as some ice cream provided from two of the Discover the Possibilities team members.
“Mosaic’s Summer End Bash is our way of thanking our donors and our community in our mission,” said community relations manager Janeth Leon in an e-mail to the Leader & Times. “We would like to extend an invitation to all community members to join us for an afternoon of private swimming and some ice cream.”
Mosaic in Liberal employs 70 direct support professionals throughout Liberal.
“The Direct Support Professionals at Mosaic are the core of our mission to promote inclusion, independence and involvement of individuals with intellectual and development disabilities among the Liberal community,” Cooper said in Leon’s e-mail. “Each of them gives of their time and talents to make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities and their families. They deserve to be recognized for their dedication.”
Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week is Sept. 8-12. The theme this year is DSP=VIP.
“The red carpet will be rolled out for our staff to enjoy an evening of good food and good company,” Leon said. “Mosaic will be hosting two separate evening nights out to recognize and thank our staff for their hard work and dedication.”
Cooper will present each staff with a recognition certificate.
“We would like the community to see the dedication and commitment our staff have towards Mosaic’s mission,” Leon said.
