Family Day in the Park

Record Day at the Park PhotoNAMI San Joaquin County once again participated in the Family Day in the Park, September 19th. Volunteers Rosalva Ibarra and Jennie Montoya joined Nancy Smith and, grandson, Carson Smith, who had a great time being a volunteer for the first time, for a fun day of games, puzzles and getting the message out about NAMI San Joaquin County. Many participants stopped by to ask questions, pick up literature, and talk with volunteers. The children played Brain Surgeon, tried to put the brain model together, worked on brain teasers and puzzles. A big thank you to Mary Nicholson of Healings In Motion for sponsoring our organization.
