Community Events and Activities
Access encourages our staff to find community events for clients to participate in. One tool we offer is Access agency passes that are available for direct care staff to checkout. These passes are for visits with clients to the YMCA, the Red River Zoo, Children's Museum at Yunker Farm, and Beads on Broadway. To use these passes, staff can check them out from the office. Please see the Receptionist for assistance. Employees are asked to return the passes back to the office within three business days of checkout. This allows other staff to use the passes. Any employee who does not not return the pass within that time will be subject to a fee.
The following websites have community calendars available:
You may also wish to check out the events and happenings of the following organizations:
Riding on Angels' Wings and Sundance Therapy Riding offer therapeutic horseback riding for children with disabilities. Riding on Angels' Wings is located in Felton, MN, and SunDance Riding is located in Dilworth.
Take your clients bowling at Sunset Lanes (Moorhead), you just need to tell them you're with Access and you'll receive free shoes, and you'll bowl for $2.60 per person per game - any day of the week, any time of the day. At All-Star Bowl (Moorhead), you can bowl on Mondays between 3 and 5 p.m. for only $4 per person (staff or client). That price includes shoes and two hours of bowling. Again, just tell them you're with Access when you show up.
Staff passes are available to check out for Beads on Broadway - a beading store in downtown Fargo. With this pass your total purchase price will receive a 25% discount.
Access is part of the Star Program with the Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre. FMCT offers us ten free tickets to a preview performance of each of their productions. A sign-up sheet is posted on the events bulletin board in the office. You will also be able to register for future productions on this website. You will not actually receive tickets for these productions. You just need to let them know that you are with Access when you arrive. FMCT rates all of their productions for content and audience appropriateness. Please visit their website for further information regarding the productions.
Please check the Access bulletin board for current events.
