Our Acquired Brain Injury Program put on their dancing shoes and boogied the night away at their Winter Ball on Friday night. Held at the Schenectady VFW, they danced, ate, and enjoyed each other’s company to the fullest.
Some of the women in the group are wheelchair riders and wanted to get up to dance. Alan Demers delighted in being their dance partner, supporting their weight so they could sway to the music. Alan said, “For me it was trying something new. I don’t usually go dancing or anything so it was nice just to be socializing in the regular world having a good time. Being the ‘token man’ was a nice touch. It was a blast!” He admitted to feeling a little nervous getting ready for the night because he didn’t know what to expect, but he left his inhibitions at the door.
They all look forward to another opportunity to party in the near future!
