Remembering Members of The Arc of Essex County Family

March 28th, 2017

Ricky Bembridge, a two-year attendee of The Arc of Essex County's Livingston CRC day program, loved music, dancing, and relaxing in his recliner.  He could brighten anyone's day with his ear-to-ear smiles, contagious laughter, comedic personality, and big hugs.

Raymond Ciarla, a long-time attendee of The Arc of Essex County's Avenues and Livingston CRC day programs, was a fierce self-advocate and foodie.  He enjoyed arts and crafts projects and took pride in showing off his work.

Angie Lado, an attendee of The Arc of Essex County's ARCompany day program and various recreation programs including Camp Hope, was full of energy and enjoyed staying active.  She was also an engaged member of The Speakers, The Arc of Essex County's Self Advocacy Club.
