Family Day

Family Day at Matheny is special. It’s an opportunity for parents and other relatives of our students and patients to visit, enjoy food and beverages prepared by the Matheny staff and relish the end of summer outdoors.

Fortunately, the weather cooperated again this year, and some families were able to cool off in our swimming pool. Thanks to the social services staff for hosting this event and to the Matheny dietary staff for preparing all the great food!

Family Day at Matheny is an annual outdoor celebration that enables parents and other relatives of students and patients to not only visit with their children but to mingle with other families in an informal, unstructured atmosphere.

There is plenty of food, an opportunity to swim in the outdoor pool and a chance to visit with Matheny staff members as well.

This year the weather on Sunday, September 9 – in the 70s with very little humidity – made it close to a perfect day.
