Hello Friends!

I'm thankful to be able to say that it looks like a fairly normal summer here at Headwaters!  We've been fortunate to be able to welcome back so many people that we haven't seen in a long time- lots of smiling faces around here!  

One new thing we've added this summer is a transition program for students with disabilities in high school.  This program supports the students and young adults to learn the skills needed to be successful in employment and to develop good life skills in general.  We have four people participating in the program in the Minocqua/Woodruff area this summer, and we're looking forward to expanding it to other areas next summer.  

We're also looking forward to our upcoming Headwaters Foundation Golf Classic, that will be held at the Rhinelander Country Club on Saturday, August 14th.  It's an annual golf tournament, but (like many things) it was cancelled last year due to COVID.  We're so excited to be able to get together and raise some money for a very important cause.  

Warmest regards,

Jenny Felty, Director
