The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others' burdens, easing others' loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of the holidays. ~ W.C. Jones~
We would like to extend our gratitude to all those who have made recent donations. This year has been challenging in so many ways but we have worked to stay connected and keep the APTS Family just that.....Family. We could not serve our community without your continued support and so, for that we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and we hope this holiday season is one filled with joy & heart-felt moments!

We understand the holidays will look and perhaps feel different this year.
Well, this pandemic has forced us to create new norms and this includes coming up with some new holiday traditions. We know that large gatherings are high risk and travel is becoming increasingly difficult so here are some fun ways to stay connected through these times when we celebrate family and togetherness.
Remember this general rule:
Take care of yourself first...by taking care of YOU first, you are creating a healthy space in which to take care of others!
Some key words to remember this
Gratitude, GRATITUDE, Gratitude
New Findings on the 90+ Study
The 90+ Study, a NIH-funded research study which began 6 years ago, has some new insights and has since changed their focus to memory and dementia. Find out what they have learned and meet their dear, dear participants!
2020 has presented us with challenges no doubt, and as a result, hopefully we have become a little softer and found a little extra space in our hearts for our communities and our neighbors. The holidays are a magical time to show the ones we love how much we care for them. Let's go beyond that by finding ways to spread that love by giving back to the community.
Support your local small businesses for your holiday shopping!
In an effort to bring some good ol' fashioned 'Holiday Cheer' to our towns and some worthy Not-For-Profits, join us in raising some much needed funds to support our community while offering families in our region a fun and safe way to enjoy holiday decorations!
This fun event crafted through the collective support of the sponsors, town officials and the Chamber of Commerce, will celebrate the holidays and benefit a Not-For-Profit of your choice as well as give families and visitors a “drive around” tour throughout December of all of the participating homes and businesses!
So get out your "Trail of Lights" map, hop in the car with your favorite Holiday tunes on and cast your votes(don't forget yours truly)!!!
