Celebrating Down Syndrome Awareness Month

It’s October, and for MDSN members, that means celebrating Down Syndrome Awareness Month.  We kicked off the month-long awareness event with our Buddy Walks last weekend.  The weather was beautiful, the entertainment was great, and the company was exceptional!  What fun we had!

Next up, a variety of events around the state.  There will be Mom’s night outs, D.A.D.S. meetings, support meetings, possibly a few small fundraiser/awareness nights at local restaurants, an outing at Bradbury Mountain, and a wrap it all up Halloween Party.  WHEW!

On the business side of things, we are planning our next Down Syndrome Specialist Breakfast, working on the Annual Conference, updating our website, commencing a membership drive, and publishing a survey of members.  We are also going to be recruiting new board members, so look for info on that coming soon!

We’ll be busy, but we’ll have fun!
