Our Valentine Dance on Friday, February 7, was a great success!

Our location at Corpus Christi Parish Hall had a charming and cozy ambience. Families from every age group joined us for fun and dancing with friends and making new friends!

The music kept everyone dancing and mingling on the floor. The very popular photo board was thoroughly enjoyed by all!

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who happily decorated the walls, ceilings and tables, took pictures, looked after the music, helped cleanup and kept things hopping for a fun Valentine event. Snacks were lovingly prepared and set on the pretty table for all to enjoy.

Thank you to our families who joined us, we appreciate your support!

Our next event will be Saturday, March 21 celebrating World Down Syndrome Day and 30 years as an Association with a Dance-a-thon. The location will be at the Vollmer Complex in LaSalle. So save this date, keep your dancing shoes shined and look for more info to follow.

March 21 is observed all around the world to signify 3 copies of the 21st chromosome which is the difference in people with Down Syndrome.

Photos at the dance can be viewed on our Facebook page and our website at upaboutdown.org.
