Last year, leaders from the Roosevelt Island Disabled Association and Island Kids sought organizational synergies with Moving Forward. On Saturday, their efforts paid off with their initial Teen Culinary Class catering a Mother's Day Brunch, hosted by the Carter Burden Network with RIDA at the Senior Center. The place was packed.

Nia Bailey's Teen Culinary Class, Moving Forward's effort to prepare talented teens for careers, swung into action at the Senior Center on the cusp of Mother's Day. Outreach from multiple programs involved was enough to draw a full house on a Saturday when facilities at 546 Main Street would normally be closed.

Success is likely to encourage expansive efforts to exploit the synergies developed from aligning a diverse group of teens, seniors and folks overcoming disabilities.

All programs involved receive significant funding from Public Service Grants awarded annually by the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation.

Volunteer efforts to assure that as many as possible enjoy the embrace of holiday events resonate throughout the year, solidifying community, setting an example that won't be forgotten.
