Today, lots of new things were unveiled for MCC! First, our spa project on the Brooklyn Household is officially complete! The walk-in tub will help residents with ease of pain and arthritis and rheumatism, among numerous other benefits. We also received 3 new IV Infusion Pumps for our Rehabilitation with a goal of reducing unnecessary hospital transfers for our residents. Both projects, the spa and the pumps, were partially funded by MCC runners for the 2016 and 2017 Boilermaker Charity Bib teams.

Acacia Home Care Named to the Top 500 of the 2016 HomeCare Elite
James and Andrea were counselors at our Camp Turk Program at Round Lake Camp in the late 1990's. They met at the camp, despite the fact that they were both from Great Britain! Mollie Denslow, Camp Administrator, says they were the "camp couple"! James and Andrea later married and in late July returned to the camp with their two children Josh and Lauren. The family spent the day showing their children where it all began. They connected with other counselors from upstate New York, and then returned to New York City, where they were getting together with other counselors. Following their visit to the states, they were heading to the Olympic Games in Rio, for what Andrea describes as a trip of a lifetime.
If you weren't among the hundreds of people who stopped by the Concert on the Lawn July 20th, you missed a great time. Soul Injection got the party started and mother nature helped by providing a beautiful night!
