Dancing Disco Diva’s Young and Old

A few weeks ago Embrace Richmond hosted the first annual “Disco Day” in partnership with the Fairfield Boys and Girls club.  It was so much fun, I wanted to share with you the pictures from the event.  The thing that really struck me was seeing the elderly (many in their 70’s) dancing alongside the young children.  I was also moved by the song “We are Family” in the context of this event.  My “Embrace Family” is made up of young, old, rich, poor, educated, not so educated, suburban, urban, black, white, and everything in between.  These pictures really demonstrate the beauty of our Embrace family.  I can’t remember an event that brought me more joy than this one.  If you are interested in joining the Embrace family please consider attending our upcoming Volunteer Orientation.  We will be hosting a Volunteer Orientation on October 5th from 11:00-1:00 at the Embrace Richmond office. Please contact Stephanie Rice at stephanie@embracerichmond.org for more information. To see more Disco Day pictures please visit the Embrace Richmond fan page on facebook.
