Last Week’s Speaker: Brad Newman, YEI
          Brad Newman is a Prescott icon! The Executive director of YEI (Yavapai Exceptional Industries) is well known for his role at YEI, as well as a Grand Canyon and Glenn Canyon tour guide, musician and celebrity.
Ask anyone who works at YEI where Brad currently lives, and they’ll say “Brad lives in a cave in the Sierra Prieta Mountains with a panther.” Brad has worked for 46 years at YEI helping people with special needs to work. Their workforce consists of more than 200 people, who are hireable to fulfill all kinds of tasks! Some of their major projects include making picnic tables and outdoor furniture, blending seed for Jay’s Bird barn, and so much more. It’s known as the “Happiest workplace in the central highlands”. YEI has three employment centers in the quad city area. Besides the main multi-building facility on North Washington Avenue in Prescott, Newman and his staff supervise two other sites - Antelope Point at Eastridge in Prescott Valley and Ruger Airpark Industries north of Prescott near the airport. They are where YEI workers learn on-the-job skills and produce products either for sale or for local merchants who employ them. Newman says, “We’re proud to say our jobs give developmentally challenged adults opportunities for learning mechanical assembly, packaging and kit-building, mail management, bench assembly, fabrication, warehousing and shipping and fulfillment and drop-shipping.” YEI also has several Family Homes where their employees can live as independently as possible. They will be adding more new family homes for men and women in the near future!
          Brad will be playing live at the Gurley Street Grill for Acker Music Night on the 13th.

Good Morning Sunupians,
With the thanksgiving holiday upon us, our thoughts turn to family and close friends. I want to wish all of you a happy and healthy thanksgiving. I look forward to seeing you at the holiday party. Don't forget that we are dark the next two Wednesday mornings.
Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough. Oprah Winfrey
