Nothing says October like a bag full of candy!

Posted by on 3:03 pm in Events | 0 comments

We don’t know about you, but when we think of October, we think of two things: Halloween and candy. This October, we’re celebrating the season in style with our first-ever Candy Campaign! There’s only one thing sweeter than candy, and that’s knowing you’ve made a difference in the lives of others. All you have to do is make a donation (of any size!) either by calling Elaina at 301-663-8811 or by visiting our website and we’ll send you a bag of your favorite candy. Plus, you might even get a $100 Wegmans...

Thank you, Frederick!

Every day, we’re extremely grateful for the support of our amazing community. But today, we’re feeling even more thankful than usual. This morning, we had the honor of being chosen as the recipient of a donation drive conducted by The Women’s Giving Circle of Frederick County. Several members of this outstanding group of female businesswomen and leaders brought bags upon bags of toiletries and bathroom supplies for the people we serve here at CLI. We are so grateful for their generous support! And to top things off, last...

What we can learn from the eclipse

Posted by on 1:16 pm in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Who saw the eclipse yesterday?! Whether you used official eclipse glasses or made your own makeshift box viewers as some of our employees here at CLI did, you probably were pretty impressed by the view. It was amazing to see — not just what was happening so high above us, but what was going on down here on earth, too. People came together to experience this awe-inspiring act of nature. The eclipse serves as a reminder of just how small we really are, and how immense the world around us is. It also reminds us that, at the end of the day,...

There’s a lot of exciting things happening here at CLI right now. Here are a couple updates: We started a Facebook group to serve as an extension of the monthly Community Forum Night.

Did you know…?

Posted by on 2:33 pm in Events | 0 comments

August is Family Fun Month! That’s pretty convenient, given our Community Fun Day is this Saturday (OK, that was a shameless plug, but we had to). August is also National Peach Month, Happiness Happens Month, and International Peace Month — along with about a dozen other titles. With all of those designations, it’s bound to be a fun 31 days. It’s hard to believe it’s already August. The summer is quickly winding down, and pretty soon we’ll be buying carving pumpkins and buying pumpkin spice-flavored and...

July is National Anti-Boredom Month!

Posted by on 3:34 pm in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Summer months are normally jam-packed with fun excursions, outtings and adventures. With the weather finally agreeable enough for us to spend quality time outdoors, the options are pretty much endless. From days at the beach, to relaxed backyard cookouts with family, there isn’t much opportunity for boredom. And so, it makes sense that July, which falls right in the middle of summer, is National Anti-Boredom Month. And that’s really what this time of year is all about. For people of all ages, the summer is a time for excitement...
