Come join the fun!

This Saturday is our May YSA meeting...and we would love to see YOU!

The topic will be: "Culture and Sports: We have the right to take equal part in arts, sports and leisure."

After our discussion, we will continue with the art theme. We will be creating a special project for the wonderful mothers and caregivers in our life.

We also hope to work on our community project. At the April meeting, participants decided it was important to bring love and joy to residents at a local nursing home. We will be creating beautiful flowers and cards to deliver next month as part of this effort.

Come join the fun!

Saturday, May 1st
10am - 12pm
The Dan Godwin Community Center

Western Washington University's Students for Disability Awareness (SDA) hosted their third annual Disability Awareness Fair on Tuesday.

The Arc of Whatcom County's team was headed up by Terri Hansen - Inclusion Advocate and YSA Mentor - and included other supporters of The Arc.

Jimmy Monroe, who is joining the YSA group, also attended with his family. Thanks everyone for a wonderful awareness event!
