As a member of the Leadership Team, the Calmer Choice Chief Program Officer is responsible for leading the overall vision, strategic development, implementation and evaluation of Calmer Choice’s direct service and training programs.
At Calmer Choice, we have so much to be grateful for as we step out into the sun this spring. Read about our latest news and plans for 2021 from Emily Smalley, COO.
The 2021 Tour de Barnstable event will be held virtually this year considering the COVID-19 pandemic. Although virtual, you can still have a ton of fun, ride bikes safely with friends, and support our work in the community.
Over the past year, with all of the restrictions and uncertainty, life, at times has seemed to slug along. However, now, amidst the rebirth that spring brings, comes a renewed sense of hope.
In part 3 of our Research Series, we dive deeper into the data of our programs and long-term results on participants.
As 2020 began, Calmer Choice was poised to successfully complete year 1 of our strategic plan on target. We were on or ahead of plan in many areas, and had good momentum coming into the second half of our fiscal year. Then our world – everyone’s world – changed.
Leslie and Jenny Jonas of Lac-Brome, QC, Canada have been awarded the Calmer Choice 2020 Abacus Award. The Abacus Award was first presented in 2017 to acknowledge and show gratitude to individuals and families who have volunteered or shown generous philanthropic support.
Michaela Herlihy and her colleagues at Beacon Financial Planning of Cape Cod, Inc. have been awarded the 2020 Tony & Lorraine Shepley Award from Calmer Choice. The award is in recognition of their unwavering support of the Calmer Choice mindfulness programs.
So, you are probably all anxious to hear about those brain changes we alluded to in Part 1 of our story but…we’re not quite there yet. The seeds of our research journey really begin back in 1987!
Today is March 1st. As I take some time to reflect on the start of a
new month, I am aware of a variety of thoughts and feelings. As March
signals the official start to spring, I am aware that I love this time
of year, bearing witness to the unofficial start of the spring season.
Witnessing the spring song of the birds, feeling the warmth of the
sunlight, and seeing daylight expand well into the late afternoon.
As I experience March’s presence through my senses, I also acknowledge and remember what was present a year ago.
