A big thank you goes to the schools who participated as well as to our amazing community who supported and continues to support the mission of Special Olympics.
The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
All schools are currently in the process of selling gourmet salts, bath salts and locally made maple syrup to help fund the Area 29 Special Olympics.
Ask your local school for a copy of the order form or call to place an order. Orders will be taken through Dec. 15.
