|Children of Lamb Staff Enrich Homelife
The children of Lamb employees may spend their summers at the Lamb Foundation instead of at a daycare facility. It's one of the benefits of working here, and having children around benefits the Lamb Foundation, too.
These children enrich our lives in many ways. Having children among us at work brings an intergenerational aspect to games and other activities. It's a delight for both men and women who may have had children and lost contact with them, or never had children. My son Danny, now 19 years old, was raised at the Lamb Foundation. Our residents enjoyed playing with him and spending their time with him; everyone was entertained.
This summer we had 15 children as our summer helpers, visiting residents, energizing the home atmosphere, and entertaining us all; 4 of them are my own children. All of the staff's children are a joy to have in our midst and an integral part of life at Lamb. Now that school is back in session, we wait for next summer break for the return of our much-loved summer helpers.

|Local Artist is New Social Recreation Staff Member
We've recently added a new member to our social recreation staff, Victoria DeMarco Schumann. Vicki is a local award-winning artist with a special interest in promoting education in the arts. In her new position, she will help run Lamb's recreation programs and lead art classes at the Ewes Mews Clubhouse.
Vicki will also help with fundraising through the sale of her artwork. She has pledged to donate a percentage of her sales to the Lamb Foundation. Her bright, cheerful, folk art style paintings have been featured in many juried art exhibitions in the Philadelphia area. We're happy to have Vicki as the newest member of the Lamb family.
