Last week, Oak Tree Corner groups met for the last time before the short summer break. As is tradition, each group participated in a balloon launch. The balloon launch is always held during the last meeting of the year and it's a special time for both children and volunteers, as well as the family members who attend Oak Tree Corner.
Volunteers, children, and their families gathered at our Beavercreek, Oakwood, and Springboro locations to participate.
After the regular pizza dinner, we broke into our usual groups for shortened sessions. Each child and volunteer wrote notes or drew pictures for their loved ones who had died.

We gathered outside for the launch once everyone finished choosing their balloons and attaching their notes.
