2013 World Down Syndome Day Celebration

Greetings! We would like to invite all our friends and family to the 3rd annual Word Down Syndrome Day at McKey Park. The event is set for Saturday, March 16, 2013 from 12 noon-4 p.m. Worldwide, this is the 8th year that World Down Syndrome day has been observed. The date of 3-21 was set since individuals born with Down Syndrome have 3 copies of the 21st chromosome. We will have our traditonal yellow and blue balloon release, a bounce house and slide for the kids, and lunch. We are asking for families to assist with food items or other donations for the luncheon. If you would be willing to help, please let me know, and I will e-mail out a list of items for you to choose from. If you have any ideas you want to share for that day, please let us know. We cannot do this without your support. Let's get out and celebrate those who are living with Down Syndrome!
