🌻Sunflowers symbolize adoration, loyalty and longevity. Much of the meaning of sunflowers stems from its namesake, the sun itself. Sunflowers are known for being “happy” flowers, making them the perfect gift to bring joy to someone's (or your) day. 🌻

Check out this AMAZING sunflower field at Sunny B's Farm in Knox, PA. Words just can't explain how beautiful everyone looks in these gorgeous fields filled with rays of sunshine on a cloudy day!

🎼🎹 Music is good for the soul 🎹🎼

Jeff just loves slipping away to his happy place by strapping on his headphones & striking the ivory keys on his keyboard. I bet he is making beautiful music!

Let us introduce you to Leanne Severo, UCIP’s Executive Director. Leanne has worked at UCIP for 33 years. She started as a Direct Care staff in one of our group homes. Since then, she has had many jobs within the agency both in programming & administration. She has worked in every aspect of the agency except Maintenance :).

Leanne has a heart of gold & would do anything for anyone. She is a HUGE asset at UCIP & we could never thank her enough for being who she is & what she has done for the agency as a whole.

We asked Leanne a few questions as a “get to know me”

• Who has inspired you to be who you are today? My Grandmother ~ she taught me to be a kind & caring person. Also, my father ~ he taught me about responsibility & hard work.

• Where is your favorite place on earth? I love to be at home with family but outside the home I would say London, England & Lillydale.

• When you have free time, what do you like to do? I love to play Bingo, Garden & watch Penn State Football.

• What are 3 things on your bucket list?
1. I would love to revisit Hawaii & London
2. Go to Italy
3. Go to the Garlic Festival in Gilroy California

Thank you Leanne for your wonderful 33 years of service. We are all blessed to have you at UCIP.

There is just something so wonderful about the great outdoors, don't you agree?

The Bossard Nature Trail is so beautiful, so serene, so grounding and an all around great trail. Will would have to agree as he takes a break on the bench to just sit back & take it all in

Lions & Tigers & Bears OH MY 🦊🐯🐻.

It was a beautiful day to stop at Keystone Safari to spend the day visiting & feeding all the animals.

Stacie, Heather & Heather all took a turn to see how they measured up to various birds at Keystone Safari. After having fun feeding all the butterflies, Heather & Heather decided it was time to take a little break on this beautiful butterfly bench.

What a great day & what a wonderful time they all had!

🐟 Jason chose a beautiful day to relax in the morning sun and feed the fish at the Spillway 🐟

The spillway is always a great little fun day trip. Everyone always gets a kick out of seeing the hundreds of fish in the fish bowl. If you are lucky you will even see the "Ducks walk on the fish".

These shirts have got to be the best thing I have ever seen. An employee found a website called "Picture This Clothing". Basically, you print out a shirt template, color the template however you wish, you then send your art work into the company & you get your masterpiece printed right onto a shirt.

Take a look at these AMAZING pieces. These are down right amazing.

Friendship
* noun
* meaning ~ Friendship for most people is a combination of affection, loyalty, love, respect, and trust. True friendship is when someone knows you better than yourself and takes a position in your best interests in a crisis. Friendship goes beyond just sharing time together, and it is long lasting.

Jaimee & Cate are the prime example of true friendship. These 2 share a bond that no one can break & that is so special!

Oh man ~ look at that smile :) Jeffrey loves Chipotle's Rice Bowl with Chicken, so the other day he decided to try his hand at a homemade recipe. I heard it was a HUGE success & with that smile on his face, I can believe it!

What are some of your favorite meals/dishes from restaurants that you have made at home that we can share with everyone to try?

As the old saying goes, "If the crown fits, then wear it". Well that is just what Kathy, Eric & Heather did 👑.

Today's virtual art class was all about making yourself king/queen for the day. These 3 loved this project, can't you tell by the looks on their faces!

Looking good you guys, wear those crowns proudly!

UCIP in Oil City had a surprise/safe/socially-distant Drive-Thru Retirement sendoff outside of Springboard for our employee Leroy Karns last Thursday afternoon.

This was the only way in this era that we are currently in that we could get everyone out to have a chance to say goodbye to a beloved coworker and friend.

The "see-ya later" send off worked out beautifully with signs, horn-honking and cupcakes to go!

We will miss you Leroy ~ enjoy your retirement. Thank you for your 8 years of hard work & dedication. You will certainly be missed.

It's gonna be a hot one today 🥵

💦Drink lots and lots of water
☀️Avoid the sun between 11am to 2pm
🎽Dress appropriately
🥶Refrigerate or freeze your bedsheets
👍Cool down your "hot zones" - Ankles, Behind the knees, Wrists, Elbow bends, Neck, Temples
🌶Get spicy (Weird but true: spicy foods actually help you cool down. Spicy food increases your blood circulation, which in turn gets you sweaty. Sweating cools you down when the sweat cools down.)
🍡Eat a popsicle
🥤Make a smoothie

Please stay hydrated, please keep an eye on your neighbor & please be safe!

Mary Jane, Carole & Jeff swung by & visited the Petroleum Center in Venango County this week. This trio LOVES being outside & soaking in all the goodness our towns have to offer.

💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦

Here is some information on the Petroleum Center:

As the name implies, Petroleum Center was developed during the Pennsylvanian oil rush of the mid-19th century. The first well was drilled on the George Washington McClintock Farm in 1860. Soon a small community grew about half way between Oil City and Titusville. George Henry Bissell, James Bishop and others formed the Central Petroleum Company which owned the farm in the beginning of 1866 when daily production topped 1,000 barrels per day. By the summer of 1866, over 3,000 people called the Centre home with a bank, two churches, a theater, a half-dozen hotels/boarding houses, and stores serving all the needs of the growing community. Bissel & Co. Banking House stimulated economic growth with its direct ties to financial institutions in New York City. President Ulysses S. Grant visited the town in 1871. When a fire devastated the nearby town of Pithole, Pennsylvania, that town's newspaper, the Pithole Daily Record, was relocated to Petroleum Center. The town was founded in 1866 and was essentially abandoned after 1873.
