A Memorial Pathway To Healing; Butterfly Release Memorial
Our Memorial Pathway to Healing was a great Event for our your loved ones. It was held at Chesterwood Village.
COJ's Golf Outing was a success, NO RAIN
100 players ventured out what almost looked like a downpour at the 1:00 Shotgun hour at Kenwood Country Club. Golfers were greeted with lunch sponsored by Brightview; a Patient-focused, evidence-based, chemical dependency treatment organization.
After 18 holes of Golf, folks were treated to a happy hour sponsored by Miller Valentine Group, and Dinner from Eli’s BBQ. Folks loved the BBQ. There were prizes with the Winning team receiving a $500.00 Gift Certificate to Jeff Ruby’s Steak house.
Our Key presenting sponsor was Prolink Staffing; ProLink is a full-service staffing and recruiting firm offering comprehensive workforce management programs including contract, contract-to-hire (temp to perm), direct placement and managed services.
