Amy Huppi – Program Coordinator for Salt Lake Area Family Support, Respite, and Summer Camp (5 Years)

In the last five years, I have worked not only in my current program, but in the Adventure Center Day Program and Cedar City supported living program. Everywhere I have worked I have met some of the best people I know. TURN is staffed by so many wonderful and caring people. TURN is also full of amazing individuals that are smart, talented, and have a great sense of humor. I have loved supporting them to have the fulfilling lives they desire. I have had the opportunity to see individuals succeed in Special Olympics events, enjoy Disneyland, volunteer to help others, enjoy their jobs, make new friends, and make huge improvements in their goals. My goal is to provide individuals with the best support possible so that they can feel happy and successful in their own lives. I will be completing my Master of Public Administration degree this year with the hope of improving disability services in general. Each day I try to live by these words, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world” by Mahatma Gandhi.

Nina is very spunky and loves to joke around with people, often calling them “trouble” or telling them that they forgot their brain at home and they need to go get it. Before retirement she worked at Wendy’s for ten years. In her free time Nina enjoys bowling, playing softball, and doing arts and crafts. She is very good at what she does. She loves beating her staff at bowling, and enjoys being one of the best players on our community slow pitch softball team. She recently painted a canvas for our TURN talent show, and learned how to make sushi for our ethnic food night. She loves learning new skills. Nina is a lot of fun to be around and we enjoy having her here at TURN!

Come help us celebrate our 30th Annual Pasta Extravaganza and Fundraiser and bring your friends and family! It’s Friday, April 28, 2017 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm at SALT PALACE CONVENTION CENTER (use the North Entrance on South Temple just East of 200 West) Meeting Rooms 155 A thru F. There will be entertainment, carnival games, a photo booth, silent auction, drawings, and much more fun! Don’t forget the fabulous food and great volunteers!

The money raised is used to assist people supported by TURN with their recreational needs. Specifically, funds are used to provide overnight activities during Christmas and Thanksgiving for people unable to spend the holidays with family, assistance for river trips, out of state trips, Special Olympics, community classes, recreation equipment, and special events. This assistance is made available to people with limited incomes.

The cost of the event is $15.00 for adults and $7.00 for children 12 years old and under. We offer a family pass for $50.00. The pass includes four people in your household and each additional family member is $5.00. We can set aside reserved tables if a large group will be attending, tables seat 8 and cost $120.00. Contact Eleanor Houston-Till if you are interested at 801-524-8615 or eleanortill@turndreams.org.

We hope to see you at the Salt Palace for our “Pasta Extravaganza” dinner!
