The United Arc May 2018 Newsletter

Is Spring here at last? I'm noticing the crocuses peeking out. Along with the changes of spring, I hope you enjoy the fresh look of our newsletter and website!

May is always an exciting month for The United Arc! The Human Service Forum is again recognizing one of our board members. On May 17, members will join us for our Annual Business Meeting, and on May 18 we launch the Annual Gala & Auction season online! Join us! 

Congratulations to our staff who reach milestone years of service with The United Arc in 2018! Welcome to our new Human Resources manager, Kelly Tyler!

Dillon Chevrolet to be awarded the Human Service Forum Business Award!

Dillon Chevrolet is a car dealership and repair shop in Greenfield, Massachusetts owned by brothers Jay & Tom Dillon, Jr. Tom and Jay bought the dealership from their father in 1998 and have been working together to run the business ever since. Tom does sales, while Jay does the service end. Tom serves on The United Arc Board of Directors and is one of the auctioneers for The United Arc Annual Gala & Auction.  In November 2015, Dillon Chevrolet donated a 2008 Hyundai Entourage van to The United Arc. The van supports The United Arc’s Community Service Program, which facilitates community participation for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Dillon Chevrolet was a Special Sponsor of The United Arc Gala & Auction in 2016 and 2017, and drew in other businesses as sponsors and donors. We are delighted that the Human Service Forum is recognizing Dillon Chevrolet's support of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities with the Business Award at their 2018 Annual Awards Banquet.

Celebrating our dedicated staff

Congratulations to our staff who reach milestones of service this year! This year, we're honoring our long-term staff with a special Staff Longevity Dinner in June!

Thank you all for your dedication to The United Arc!
