Check back regularly for current information on special events at Burrell and in our communities.
Branson Mayor Raeanne Presley is the featured speaker at a public reception Oct. 2 at the Simmering Center location of Clarity Recovery, Division of Burrell, Inc., at 360 Rinehart Road, Branson.
The annual reception will be held from 4:30 to 6 p.m.
The reception will also feature the 2014 “Recovery Gallery” images and stories of four area residents who have overcome addiction. Recovery Gallery was established in 2011 at the recovery center. Each year four individuals are chosen to have their likenesses mounted on canvas for the photographic display of short stories and “before” and “after” images. The photographer is Amber Duran, editor of The Standard campus newspaper of Missouri State University and part-time staff member at Clarity Park.
Refreshments will be served, and guided tours of the residential facility will be offered.
Persons planning to attend are asked to call 417-335-5946 by Sept. 29.
In America, someone attempts suicide once every minute, and someone completes a suicide once every 17 minutes. Throughout the world, approximately 2,000 people kill themselves each day. It’s time to start talking about it. Prevention efforts work.
The NAMI 5K Illuminating the Darkness Run will be held on August 22nd. All funds raised go toward suicide prevention efforts. Runners can register at www.ridgerunnersports.com. This is a night run, with glow in the dark t-shirts, light shows, and more!
Not a runner? You can help by purchasing a $5 luminary in memory of a loved on to help light the path of the runners this year. http://www.namiswmo.com/memorial-luminary/
