I’m happy to report that the Excitement Committee Picnic was a success! There was an excellent turnout, as well as delicious food, thrilling activities, and a great summer atmosphere.

Serving as the event’s official “DJ,” I enjoyed having the chance to play a variety of music, including LL Cool J, Blackstreet, Basement Jaxx, the Chemical Brothers, Bob Marley, Jack Johnson, Ani DiFranco, John Coltrane, Elvis, and Junior Walker & the All Stars.

As a result, some of the photos taken at the event will be used in a new Excitement Committee display that will be prominently exhibited at the office. Though the display itself is far from complete, expect nothing less than high quality!

Stay tuned to the blog for forthcoming events; if anyone has feedback or suggestions, feel free to get in touch.

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.
