Briarwood had their Christmas party on December 17th so that all could enjoy the fun!
The residents got up early and had a special holiday breakfast.
Later they enjoyed munching on homemade cookies and fudge that the staff had made. Chips and dips plus a meat and cheese tray were totally devoured while washing it all down with eggnog and soft drinks. Everything was so good there was hardly any left. "Munch, munch"
Anticipation was rising as the opening of the gifts drew closer. The smiles and excitement made for a joyous time. Each resident was thrilled with their gifts!
After the party, the staff and residents cleaned up the mess then the residents took their goodies to their rooms.
Later they enjoyed pizza and watched some Christmas movies. So much work and preparation goes into making a party then you blink and it's all over! All in all a fantastic day!
Wishing you all the Happiest of Holidays!
Snow much fun at the Preschool!!!

October Fun at Dogwood!
Lindsey (our colorful clown) set up a carnival for Dogwood ICF in Jonesboro today. Residents enjoyed dressing up for Halloween, eating food, and playing games. Plus they all got prizes! From the looks of things, Lindsey also has a secret talent in balloon animals.

On 9/17/20 Pathfinder said goodbye to Becky Mansfield, our Director of Residential Programs, who retired from Pathfinder after 16 years of selfless service to the people we serve.
Becky held different positions with Pathfinder over the years, all of which were dedicated to improving the lives of our clients. She will be very missed by all of her friends at Pathfinder and we all wish her well on her new journey.
PoloPiaz CEO Dave Brunori and PoloPiaz Plant Manager Steve Nichols recently went to visit with members of Pathfinder, the nationally recognized, Jacksonville, AR-based nonprofit organization. They are dedicated to the development and implementation of individualized strategies designed to enable citizens with developmental disabilities, and/or behavioral health needs total access to community life.
Pathfinder supports the production department of PoloPiaz in the labeling of one-gallon cans and five-gallon pails, as well as other sizes as necessary. Pathfinder and PoloPiaz have partnered for almost 30 years, going back to the early 1990's!
PoloPiaz is very fortunate to be working with Pathfinder. It is a great way to help local people be employed that may otherwise not get jobs, the work is of the highest quality, and it is a tremendous opportunity to improve the lives of others. "I was humbled and saw firsthand how important the relationship we have with this group of amazing people is, the interaction is way above just labeling cans. More companies should reach out to similar organizations in their local area and get involved.", said Brunori. Added Nichols, "Pathfinder does a wonderful job labeling all of our many gallon cans and five-gallon pails that are used in production and manufacturing of our products for resale and are very appreciative to have a job and share in our partnership." The entire Pathfinder team was given t-shirts to commemorate the visit. For more information, visit www.poloplaz.com and www.pathfinderinc.org.
We are so proud of these smiling faces that selflessly got up in the early morning hours on Saturday, August 15 to come to the rescue of our Jacksonville neighbors. The Jacksonville Towers Senior residential center experienced a power outage that resulted in having to move the residents to other locations. Pathfinder was contacted by the Jacksonville Police Department and five of our great staff jumped to help. Over sixty residents were transported to a nearby hotel. A big thank you goes to Geneva Hopkins, Victor Henderson, Peggy Smiley, Kaisa Alexander and Juliet Gilliam. You make Pathfinder very proud!
We also want to recognize the generosity of Linda Curtis, who has taken two of the seniors from the Towers into her home. She too came to the rescue in the early morning hours without hesitation. This is a huge undertaking, but no surprise to any of us who know Linda. We are so very proud!
