The event was magical, the gym was decorated like a Caribbean Island, Jack Snyder was our DJ and played great dancing music. The prom procession featured all participants being crowned with a Lei.

FUN Calendar/Schedule Change for April vacation week

Zack’s Place is going to the movies!

Participants, family, caregivers, & friends ~

We have made a change to our calendar/schedule for this fun-filled April vacation week.  This Friday, April 19th, Zack’s Place is headed to the EMC Lebanon 6 Theater to see The Croods, rated PG.

The bus will leave Zack’s Place at 10:50am and will return by 1pm.  (No one will be at ZP during this time.)  If your participant is able to contribute towards their ticket price…great.    

The theater will not allow us to bring our own snacks and drinks so participants should bring money if they would like something from the snack bar. We will have a snack/lunch time just before we leave ZP. 

You can find out more about The Croods at –

Your RSVP ASAP would be greatly appreciated! 
Participants will be supervised by Shauna & Kitty for this outing.  You will be able to reach Shauna on her cell during this time, 603-558-2288.
Please call or e-mail ZP if you have any questions or need to make special arrangements.
