ADSS To Hold Summer Event

The Altamaha Down Syndrome Society will host a summer pool party for local individuals with special needs and their families from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 13, at the Vidalia Aquatics Center.

The nonprofit organization serves to connect families of those with special needs to form a support system, provide individuals with special needs a safe and supportive environment to experience new things, and to advocate for acceptance of those with special needs. “It’s so easy to feel isolated or like no one understands when you have a child or family member with special needs,” Society Founder Stacie Randolph remarked. “We wanted a space where everyone felt understood, but also where we could help others realize that special needs and differences aren’t so scary.”

With the weather being so warm currently, Randolph said choosing the aquatics facility for the Society’s summer activity was an easy decision. “I knew this was something everyone would be able to enjoy and fellowship at, and I’m excited to get to see everyone again!” she emphasized.

The event is free to all families and friends of individuals with special needs. For more information on this event or the Society, call Stacie at (912) 2533356.
