All Kinds of News for May 10, 2017
In April, Solstice West celebrated its 9th birthday. Solstice invited referral partners to join in on the fun-filled day, showing many of the activities that the students at the campus benefit from. The day started with an Equine experience at the Arrowhead stables, where they participated in a Love and Logic training. The guests then joined an art therapy experience with our art teacher and art therapist. Lunch was served for everyone on campus, where there was music, cake, games and of course singing Happy Birthday. Two of Solstice’s founders, Dan Stuart, Executive Director and Keoni Anderson, Addictions Program Director also spent time with everyone talking about the history of Solstice.
It's amazing to think it has been 9 years!
Solstice was also able to show off some of their remodeling projects around their campus. The main lodge room was the first to receive some renovating which included paint, a new chandelier, light fixtures, rugs, curtains & beautiful new décor for the mantle and walls.
A favorite focal point of the room is the new art piece above the fire place, a quote from Walt Whitman that reads, “Keep your face always toward the sun and shadows will fall behind you”. This remodel has created a fresh, bright and cheerful room for Solstice girls to spend time in.
