  • Paul Felis Memorial Fishing Trip

    A special thanks to RBC Dain Raucher & the Sandy Hook Bay Anglers for providing a terrific outing for the 13th Annual Paul Felis Memorial Boat Trip for our young adults with disAbilities and their families. The crew and captain of the Mi-Jo assured that everyone had a great time as we tried our best to catch fish. The seas were not as cooperative this year, but it is always an exciting trip!

It is with great shock and sadness that we share with you that Michael Bell, President of the FRA Board of Trustees, has died of a sudden heart attack.  Michael has been very involved with FRA for almost 30 years in numerous capacities; most recently in his role as a board member.   He has served as Vice President, as well as remained an active member of our Finance Committee and Chair of our annual Golf Outing at Navesink Country Club.  As a strong supporter of FRA and our programs, he and his family are the main contributors of Toby's Friends sibling programs at FRA, keeping this program free to all of our families.  This is named in memory of his oldest son Toby (who pre-deceased his father) and who was a cherished part of our FRA family receiving services as a child, and whose siblings greatly benefited from the sibling group. 
The passing of Michael is a great loss to his family, to FRA and to the communities he served as he was also very involved locally with both Shrewsbury and Oceanport, as well as in Tequesta, Florida.  He was truly a humanitarian who cared for many and passionately made a difference to our world.  The family has asked that contributions be made to Family Resource Associates or to the First Aid of your choice.
Please join me in sending your sympathies to his wife Cathy, sons Chael, Brian and Kevin and to his family.  Our caring thoughts are with them.
