PARC is proud to announce our 2019 Shining Star is Tim Fernald. Tim has been a part of the PARC family for more than 12 years. However, no one seems to remember how they first learned about PARC. Tim is a very social guy and was very involved in activities at Farmington High School where he liked the school-sponsored fun activities and going to the games.

After graduation, it was a challenge to find opportunities for him to get out with friends and have some fun away from Mom and Dad. Mom Jane and Dad Dave said PARC has really filled this void in Tim’s life.

He loves being part of the Bowling team on Saturday mornings, the birthday parties and going to different restaurants with his PARC friends. He also really enjoys the PARC staff who have always been so great with him. Tim has so many friends at PARC, and he loves and respects all of them.

What I love most is that he only sees the special gifts of all of the PARC members. His family says that one of the very best things about PARC is that everyone is loved, respected and appreciated for their unique gifts.

This world has so much to learn from the members’ example. As Jane said, “I know that I have grown so much from my relationship with everyone in this special family.
