One of the fun features of Sister Ann’s Ministry of Caring events with those of Valley CAPS are some of the old recess games.

On Friday, the group otherwise known as consumers of the day program for adults with developmental disabilities was the hot potato game.

In this case, a basketball was used for consumers and helpers – included were seventh-grade students Kalli McElrath, Alyssa Paull, and Jude Ramos from the nearby St. Anthony’s School, and Hugo Gutierrez, a freshman at Venture Academy in Stockton, gathering in a circle and tossing the ball to each other behind the playing of music.

In the end, Ramos and Valley CAPS’ Michael Robinett were the last two standings.

Robinett took home one of the donated prizes.

Sr. Ann Venita Britto conducts luncheons for Valley CAPS and seniors throughout the year. This one was held in the snack bar area of the gymnasium, accommodating nearly 40 for the lunch consisting of Little Caesar’s Pizza donated by soon-to-be-retiring St. Anthony’s principal Mary Lou Hoffman.

Alice Corriea and Darlene Auch from the Ministry of Caring also donated to the event.
