AARC's 59th Anniversary Luncheon

AARC recently hosted its annual anniversary luncheon at the Hilton Garden Inn's Gillespie Conference Center in South Bend. We were honored and thrilled to be back together in person for the first time since 2019, surrounded by our staff, board of directors, friends, community partners and supporters! It was an opportunity to celebrate the past year and look ahead to the next, as we officially kicked off a new era at AARC! 

It was also a time to reflect on the history of the organization and recognize the accomplishments and hard work of Sharon Burden and Diana Smith, who both retired in September after decades of service to the organization and community. 

We are excited to be launching several new programs in the coming months and to be growing as an organization, with the addition of several new positions!

Thanks to all who attended our event this year, those who helped support our work and here's to a wonderful 2022 and beyond!
