Please join us for a delicious dinner and a chance to visit where “Magic Happens Every Day”!May 2019 Dinner
Welcome to spring! March was a busy month here at PI; celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with Ian Gauthier on bagpipes and enjoying Sue’s fresh baked pretzels for afternoon snack. We also happily welcomed back one of our volunteer entertainers, Bob Brookens!
As a special breakfast treat, participants were served waffle bowl sundaes made with Greek yoghurt, fresh fruit, cheerios and of course sprinkles! Needless to say, they were a hit! As part of PI’s daily programming, we include an exercise period which we always try to make fun and entertaining. One of everyone’s favorite games (exercise) is noodle ball; played with pool noodle bats and inflated balloons.
The Spring Variety Show was an opportunity for Participants to entertain family and friends showcasing their may talents!
We are taking this opportunity to send out a big Thank You to all our faithful Lucky Raffle supporters! Your past support is greatly appreciated.
This year, instead of the Lucky Raffle, the PI Fundraising Committee is focusing their efforts in a different direction. We invite you all to continue supporting us in other fundraising ventures, such as:
- Dinners held at PI
- Annual Coin Drop
- Via newsletter (if you aren’t on our mailing list, let us know)
- Other PI sponsored events
Stay connected with all our happenings via Facebook (Project Independence, Barre) and website (www.pibarre.org)
We look forward to seeing you soon!

On the 21st of December, PI celebrated Christmas with a fun filled day of music, great food and of course a visit from Santa. Christine Litchfield led everyone in caroling, followed by Santa who presented each participant with a XMAS gift from PI (large bath sheet with PI’s logo and a PI tote bag). Santa was assisted by PI’s two elf volunteers from the Work Based Learning Program at the Central VT Career Center. A special luncheon of prime rib, prepared by Chef Ed from Gifford Medical Center, was enjoyed by all. The afternoon activities included BINGO, quiet reflections with Shelly and music from one of our favorite folk singers, Paula Gills.
