      HALLOWEEN PARTY OCTOBER 27, 2022

Our CSSI Halloween/Haunted House Party was a HUGE success!! It was attended by about 60 people, many of whom came in wonderful costumes!  All were greeted at the front porch with a decorated photo booth for a photo shoot, then into the scary haunted house!  After making it through the haunted house, all were greeted with a room filled with pumpkin decorating activities, photo frame decorating activities, walking tacos, hot apple cider, Halloween music and lots and lots of party socializing and dancing!  What a treat for us all!!  The costume contest winners were announced the following week, with prizes to be collected at the office.

Our September 2022 Hike at Bible Park

 

Our CSSI monthly event for September was a wonderful hike around the large and beautiful Bible Park. All participants arrived with their water, snacks, comfortable walking shoes, and a smile.  Everyone enjoyed the fresh air, the sun, and the fellowship. We were also able to witness some of the various activities at the park, such as a lacrosse practice taking place in one of the many fields. This event was a celebration of Winning. We enjoyed winning weather, winning fellowship and winning fun together. After completing our lap around the park everyone had the opportunity to sit and continue to enjoy their water and snacks. We took a group photo, and all participants earned a medal inscribed with the word “Winner”. We all walked away from this successful hiking event as winning examples of growing, learning, experiencing, and enjoying life.

JUNE 2022 OUTDOOR BINGO EVENT

 

Our monthly event for June at CSSI was outdoor Bingo! This was hosted at our office’s front patio where everyone picked up their BINGO card and settled into their seats at the communal tables.  We served everyone a picnic dinner of sandwiches, fruit, chips, and water that we all enjoyed in between rounds of BINGO. Our entire Quality Assurance Department organized this event, with Associate Director, Nicki Smith as the official BINGO Number Caller. The Director, Adrianne Boyd and Manager, Christina Sawtelle were there as well to ensure the winners had a "good BINGO" and the lucky people all won a prize for each round!

We gave out many fun summer prizes and did a lot of different BINGO shapes at each round to keep things exciting.  The weather was great, and it was so nice to enjoy our event outside on a summer day.  There was a great turnout with a lot of excited participants.  Everyone had a great time, and we even had some double BINGO winners!”


 

MARCH 2022 ONLINE COOKING CLASS

 

Our Monthly Event for March at CSSI was an online cooking class! Participants tuned in on Zoom and together we all made loaded baked potatoes in our kitchens, YUM! We had a great turn-out of around 40 people who tuned in online.  Everyone picked up their ingredient kit from CSSI beforehand, which also included an apron and recipe card. Our class instructors went through the process step-by-step and we all enjoyed dinner together.  After making the loaded potatoes, everyone made an easy yogurt parfait with fruit for dessert. We all really enjoyed this new and fun event at CSSI and are looking forward to more great events in the future, especially as summer approaches!

December 2021 Holiday Party

While we really miss our in-person huge holiday parties with music, food and dancing, we did bring together lots of people this year to celebrate the holidays with the UGLIEST SWEATER CONTEST and the BEST DECORATED ROOM/HOME CONTEST.  Fun was had by all on our ZOOM HOLIDAY EVENT as we saw lots of UGLY SWEATERS (some that even lit up!) and BEAUTIFUL holiday decorations.  It was a joy to be together, with lots of visiting and laughter and sharing!  There were prizes for the ugliest sweaters, best decorated rooms/homes and even door prizes!  It was a great event!   

 

NOVEMBER 2021 VIRTUAL CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT DECORATING EVENT

November's Virtual ZOOMED event was a success!  Over 30 people attended this event and fun was had by all.  It was great seeing how each person used their unique decorating skills to really make their ornaments POP!!  Some decorated with glitter and lights and the colors were AMAZING!!!  Everyone enjoyed their popcorn and something refreshing to drink!  Thank you everyone for showing up on ZOOM and making this event a FUN time!!  We'll see you next month!

 

CSSI Annual Picnic, August 2022

 

What a JOY to have our CSSI Annual Picnic once again!  The picnic had a great turnout and much FUN was had by all!  The food was delicious, and the activities were a blast!  People were lined up at the PHOTO booth to get pictures taken with family, friends and support personnel!  Winning prizes for events and getting a tattoo topped it off! The most special part was seeing everyone visit and enjoy each other's company!  The smiles and the laughter made the day!  We plan to return to our favorite 'UTAH PARK' next year so stay posted for more fun to come!
