The Arc Remembers Gail Foster and Amoda Duncan

September 7th, 2017

Gail Foster, a long-time attendee of The Arc of Essex County’s Day Programs and a recent Millburn group home resident, was born and raised in Newark and Irvington.  She enjoyed bowling, dining out, and going to the hair salon. One of her happiest memories was attending the Day Programs Prom in June, which combined her love of getting dressed up and socializing with friends.

Amoda Duncan began his journey with The Arc when he began attending the Bridges Day Program in October 2014.  Even though he was quiet and reserved, Amoda enjoyed participating in all activities, especially Friday community lunches.
