Annual Gen Ryan Memorial Barbecue

Our annual BBQ on May 7th was our first opportunity to gather in person this year, and it was a big success, in spite of the rainy weather. We honored the memory of our dear friend Gen Ryan, we caught up on each other’s life news, and enjoyed a delicious BBQ lunch.  The inclement weather did nothing to dampen the spirits of our guests, and the event was joy-filled and lots of fun.

Thank you to everyone who attended and to all of our supporters. We are grateful. To view photos of the BBQ, click HERE.

Transitioning Resources at Your Fingertips

To assist our members and families, PCR has created a series of informative videos explaining how to access services and resources for people with developmental differences and their families (e.g., Qualifying for Medicaid, MCPS Transition Services, Legal Services).  These videos, which include American Sign Language interpretation, can be accessed HERE.
