Our Stories, Part 2

Here are some more pictures from the Xavier/InRETURN event from last Thursday.


Catching up before the event

The event began around 7 and people began to fill the InRETURN break room.  Everyone brought food and drinks to share.  With so many families in attendance, there was a lot to talk and laugh about.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Time to eat!

It was great to see all the Xavier students and our Associates and their families socializing and eating together.  The room was filled with warmth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nate starts the evening off

After everyone’s had a chance to get some food, Nate begins the event by reading his story.  He talked of his family, his hobbies, how he loves work and his future plans.  He also cracked a lot of jokes and really got the evening off to a great start!
