About this event

Good news! We have been approved to return to campus for our October meeting and Family Day Picnic!

The Family Day Picnic is scheduled for Saturday, October 1, 2022, on the picnic grounds of Oakwood Trails (on the East side of the campus). The food serving line will open at 11:15 am. There will be good food, good music, and a great time of fellowship with the residents, families, and staff of the Abilene State Supported Living Center. This is a highlight of the year for our loved ones and an occasion you will not want to miss.

Before the Picnic, the Family Association Meeting will be at the Chapel beginning at 9:00 am. This is a good opportunity to hear about things going on around campus, bring up any concerns you have, and keep informed about legislative issues. We hope everyone can attend.

Two items will be of particular interest to you:

  • As was communicated in our last letter, Dr. Bill Spencer, our beloved chaplain, has retired as of this past December. We will take a few minutes to honor Dr. Spencer and his wife, Ida Ann, for the many years of service they have given to the residents, staff, and families of the Abilene SSLC.
  • We will also introduce our new chaplain, Mr. Mike Horton.

If you would like to help with the cost of the picnic, mailings, and other expenses incurred on behalf of the Abilene SSLC residents, families, and staff, please send your contribution to the Family Association (or bring it with you when you come to the meeting & picnic).

We hope you can be here to spend some quality time on the AbSSLC campus!
