It is that time of year again and Special Olympics Summer games are just around the corner.. GBS athletes and thousands of other athletes will be attending summer games in Orono at UMO June 7, 8 and 9th. GBS athletes have been working hard to prepare for the summer games. They will be attending Area Games at Hale-dale High School May 9th with a rain date of May 10th for time trails.
Another pleasant round of Special Olympics fundraising has passed. The Graham Behavioral Services team raised a total of $2618 in a bowl-a-thon. After the bowling expenses, we were able to forward a net of $2443 toward the funding of our athletes, which will allow them to go to summer games at no cost, with some extra money left for uniforms and winter games next year. We will be doing a car wash a VIP Auto Sales on Western Ave in Augusta Maine this summer and the date will be determined at a later time.
I would like to thank Spare-Time in Hallowell for allowing GBS to hold a bowl a thon. Thank you to all the staff and people in the community who sponsored this event.. Without you this fundraiser would not of been a huge success.

Harry Graham and his wife Carol co-own Graham Behavioral Services, Inc., a mental health services agency with offices in Augusta and Portland, Maine. In addition, Graham presents at conferences on the topic of leadership and ethics and their effect on clinical outcomes, which is also the subject of a Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) thesis he is currently researching. He talked to us earlier this month about what his work and his research have taught him about how investing time and money in direct care workers pays off for agency owners.
