Late last month, two of Bridgewell’s Employment Supports Individuals Lois and Jacob participated in an art show as part of the Edinburg Center’s 6th Annual Rock into Recovery 5K run/walk and Festival.

The event took place at the Waltham Common and featured artists from various backgrounds and with developmental, physical and psychiatric disabilities. With more than 200 runners, the common was filled with hundreds of people supporting runners and checking out the artists section.

Jacob was selling his handmade earrings and Lois was selling various paintings, bird houses and plant pots. Both artists sold several items and received lots of compliments on their artwork.

Great work, Lois and Jacob!
