Happy Birthday, Tal!
May 14, 2012
Our very special Tal just celebrated his 21stbirthday!
In what has become an annual tradition, Tal himself chose the way he wanted to celebrate this special occasion: a BOWLING TRIP with his buddies!
Accompanied by staff and volunteers, Tal and his classmates traveled to Talpiot to have some great fun.
The fun started even before the game. As they got out of the van, a DJ who works in the area spotted Tal and his friends and was immediately taken by the group.
He invited them to his studio, turned on some lively music and began blowing up balloons in all different shapes and twists, to the delight of the excited residents.
The fun continued into the bowling alley, with the residents all participating in the game, accompanied to the cheers of their caregivers.
The game was challenging and great fun – and the winner was Tal!
The Birthday Party took place at the bowling alley’s restaurant, with pizza and chips ordered for all. And to top off the event, out came a surprise birthday cake, baked by Tal’s dedicated recreational counselor.
The group returned home happy and satisfied, and already looking forward to their next friend’s birthday…!
