Augusta, NJ (September 22, 2013) – On a breezy and colorful fall day, SCARC Guardianship Services, Inc., celebrated its clients and their families by hosting a picnic at the Hampton Township Park in New Jersey on Sunday, September 22, 2013.

More than 80 of their clients, family members, staff, friends and the SCARC Guardianship Services Board of trustees came out to enjoy each other’s company, listen and dance to the music of the Clovis Band, and enjoy lunch catered by Villa Capri Pizza in Newton, New Jersey.

“This picnic is important as it represents the personal relationships we have with our clients and their family; there is a bond among everyone here today,” said Linda McConville, Chief Executive Officer of SCARC Guardianship Services, Inc. “We have a lot of great things happening at our organization and none of it would be possible without the support of the community, our clients, and the staff of SCARC Guardianship Services; we are grateful for our successes over the last 24 years.”

SCARC Guardianship Services, Inc. came back again this year to enjoy the wonderful facilities at the Hampton Township Municipal Park. All that attended took pleasure in the beautiful fall day with activities, their growing “family of friends” and a delicious lunch.
