New Year’s Party at Genesis House by Steve Lindsay

A new beginning and a fresh start is what most people think of when 2017 arrived on a gorgeous, sunny, bitterly cold January morning. Most of all, Genesis House was open on a holiday where members and staff can spend time together and help celebrate the first of the year. With a large turnout, the clubhouse enjoyed a vast variety of pizzas ranging from vegetarian style to cheese and pepperoni. Salad and homemade brownies closed out the menu for the day, too. During the morning and afternoon hours, staff member, Susan, and all clubhouse friends, including myself, listened to some music while we ate in the café. Good food and some casual conversation were the highlights on New Year’s Day at Genesis House. A few members even had some resolutions and personal things they needed to improve on for 2017. As members were reflecting on the previous year, there was a strong level of promise and optimism for the next twelve months ahead. Isn’t that what it’s all about? Not only should we apply these hopeful goals to our own lives each day but many days beyond this year. Let’s strive to achieve our best efforts for 2017.
