On Saturday, August 19tht, parents of children with special needs living in Santa Cruz County had their Annual Summer Picnic at Teyechea park in Nogales Arizona. The purpose of this event is to celebrate special needs children to promote awareness, value, and inclusion with the purpose of creating equal opportunity, so they can be active and important members of our community. Children and their families enjoyed free hot dogs, beverages, treats, music, and games! Special needs children and families truly enjoyed themselves. The Santa Cruz Parent Love Connection would like to thank Southern Arizona Network for Down syndrome /SANDS and our SCPLC parent committee for their contributions to help fund this event. For more information please contact Maria Scholnick (520) 470-5833 or email@example.com. We would like to thank our volunteers. A friendly reminder that you don’t have to have a special needs child to join our team!
