                                  FOGARTY FOUNDATION AWARDS GRANT


        At their recent annual meeting, the Board of Trustees of the John E. Fogarty Foundation for
        Persons Developmentally Challenged approved a grant of $4,000 to help fund the Therapeutic
        Recreation Program sponsored by the Adeline LaPlante Memorial Center. The Fogarty
        Foundation has historically been a very generous contributor to the LaPlante Center’s
        Therapeutic Recreation Program. The Center, located in Wakefield, operates a comprehensive
        program for persons with developmental disabilities. In order to meet the varying needs of these
        persons, programs are individualized and cover all areas of daily living, vocational choices,
        educational improvement, residential services, medical and psychological therapies, specialized
        therapeutic recreation and personal growth.

        The John E. Fogarty Foundation for Persons Developmentally Challenged has made a
        commitment to award grants to those organizations proposing innovative and quality programs.
        We are grateful that they have recognized our organization, the Adeline LaPlante Memorial
        Center, and support us in our goal to enhance the quality of life of the people we serve.
