Bristol Adult Resource Center (Bristol ARC) is excited to announce the appointment of Mary Etter to the position of Executive Director. Mary replaces Judy Gebben, who served the agency for four years.
Mary has almost three decades of non-profit experience. She joined Bristol ARC in October 2012 as Finance Director and was promoted to Associate Executive Director in July 2013. Mary brings extensive knowledge and practical application to the position - two key elements which are crucial to ensuring the continued success of the organization.
BARC is proud to be celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. What started as a grass roots alternative to institutionalization for twelve individuals has grown into an organization which provides a wide range of vocational, residential, and day service options to over one hundred eighty men and women with special needs.
To commemorate its landmark anniversary, Bristol ARC has several events planned for the coming year. Our annual Gala is being held on May 9th at the Aqua Turf and our second annual golf tournament, in partnership with PARC of Plainville, is being held on May 20th. Please see our Website and connect with us on our Facebook page for more information on these and other exciting events.
