Renewed and Refreshed

Renewed and Refreshed — Couples Retreat a Huge Success!

Twenty-five couples attended the recent HNC Couples Retreat in Concord, NC on March 1st and 2nd. During the program we enjoyed a delicious breakfast and lunch prepared for us by the staff at Embassy Suites. The group had a chance to visit with our sponsors and then attended a workshop presented by Inalex Communications and their speaker, Jack Kakolewski.

WorkshopThe program included introductions and warm-ups, which were very enlightening. We then explored relationships, dealing with differences, disappointments, failures and finding ways to repair and heal disconnects. Topics and exercises also included emotional dependency and connectedness, intimacy and most of all, renewal and hope.

Embassy SuitesThe workshop was filled with fun, humor and lots of opportunities for the couples to rediscover their relationships.

At the conclusion of the workshop, everyone had a chance to get settled in their room at the beautiful, new Embassy Suites and enjoyed a beverage at the Managers Cocktail Reception in the lobby. That was followed by a wonderful dinner in their private dining facility, The Rocky River Grille. Speakers The evening came to a conclusion with an amazing performance by Adrian the Magician who wowed everyone with his close up card tricks and parlor show where the whole audience got involved!

Our many thanks to Joe Caronna, President and Co-Founder of Inalex Communications – a non-profit organization that conducts workshops for the community – for an outstanding program for our members.
