Excitement Committee Grillin’ and Bakin’

by Eric Pudalov, Community Events Coordinator

I realize it’s been awhile since I’ve written a blog entry, but I’m returning to the office very soon, so I thought it worth a blog post.  This, and tomorrow marks the Excitement Committee’s grill event, at which we will be grilling hot dogs, hamburgers, and veggie burgers in an effort to raise money for consumers.

I plan on being present at this event, and I look forward to seeing my fellow GCSS consumers and co-workers again!  For those of you who possibly didn’t receive the e-mail about this event, it begins at 11:30 AM, and ends at 1:30 PM, at the GCSS office.  At only $2.50, you can purchase a delicious sandwich, chips, and a bottle of water.

For only $1 more, you can purchase an additional hot dog or hamburger.  Finally, for dessert, we will be featuring a variety of baked goods made by the Excitement Committee, ranging from $.50 to $1.00.  Please, feel free to join the festivities!

P.S. Expect to see the blog updated more regularly from now on!


About gcsscommunity

My name is Eric Pudalov, and I work as Community Events Coordinator with Georgia Community Support and Solutions, whose mission is to provide creative, life-enriching solutions to people with developmental disabilities and their families. I became interested in this field, however, due to having a disability myself; namely, I had brain surgery in 1996 at age 14, to remove a benign tumor. Following this, I had many difficulties with short-term memory, loss of strength, confusion, and emotional control. Fortunately, at present, I've recovered much of what I'd lost. Despite some setbacks, I graduated high school with honors, and received an academic scholarship to Adelphi Univ., where I earned a BA in Communications. Since then, I've held a number of different jobs and internships, among them a TA position at Sylvan Learning Center, and work as a "Service Leader" with Hands on Atlanta. Since living in GA, I've also been involved with two programs (including GCSS) that serve people with disabilities. My experience has included sharing apartments with adults with autism and other disorders. Though my so-called "limitations" may differ from those of others in the program, these experiences have helped me to realize that people, overall, are capable of much more than we may at first perceive.
