Arc Residents Enjoy Summer Celebrations and Excursions

Residents in The Arc of Essex County’s group homes have been taking in the summer season with fun activities and adventures.

At the Marmon Apartment Program in West Orange, residents celebrated Roy, Kevin, and Patrick’s birthdays by putting together a carnival-themed birthday party and inviting other homes to celebrate with them. Residents in the Branch Brook group home in Belleville visited the Orange Park Music Festival together, taking in the music (and the ice cream!). The Park Place Apartment Program has been seeing the sights, visiting the Irvington Carnival and enjoying day trips to Dorney Park and Seaside Heights.
