Together We Are One: 2014 Annual Meeting

New Avenues held its 2014 Annual Meeting on February 27th at the TS Macklin Party Centre, Solon.

This year’s theme, Together We are One, focused on teamwork, supporting one another’s efforts and helping those in need. It also reinforced the concept that as One we are all different but the same, connected as one people, one spirit and one community.

During the Meeting, our 2014 Board of Directors took their oath of office and welcomed three new members. Mayor Fletcher Berger of Bedford Heights conducted the swearing in. Special recognition was given to Bruce Sherman, Ph.D. as he termed off the Board after 15 years of service.

A renowned singer/songwriter Jody Soland, was our special guest. Jody and her son, Nathan, performed the New Avenues theme song, Together We are One, which was unveiled for the first time at the Meeting.

This year, New Avenues welcomed Kimberly Tutstone as our featured speaker. Kimberly is an individual who has proven to the world that people with disabilities are just as capable of living and enjoying life as those without disabilities. The attendees were inspired by her message of not letting her disability hold her back.
