What a wonderful evening!
It was an amazing night celebrating, honoring, and recognizing the many accomplishments of the Yes She Can trainees, graduates, and local artists with learning differences. The artists displayed their paintings, drawings, sculptures, handmade dresses, and photographs. County Executive George Latimer commented on the amazing talents of each artist and shared that he can barely draw a stick figure.
On a more serious note, County Executive George Latimer said to the trainees, “You have abilities, and you are doing great work. Yes She Can is a terrific organization that the county and city greatly respect, and we will remain good partners.”
Mayor Roach spoke about the wonderful contributions Yes She Can provides to the city and encouraged us to reach out if we need any support or assistance.
Jeff Zitofsky talked of his journey and how support got him to where he is today. Jeff also encouraged everyone to contact Westchester County Office for People with Disabilities with any questions or assistance necessary.
Now for the best part, the celebration told in pictures enjoy…
