They plan diffferent events that are free or discounted so that our loved ones get to go do things they might not normally get to go do like going to a Wizards Ball Game, Monthly Sensory Friendly gym times, Christmas Party, and Pool parties. We need people to be will to help in whatever way you can. We are looking for people to donate things to help raise money for the events that they have for our children and families.

Thank you. https://facebook.com/events/s/7th-annual-the-arcs-i-can-5k-a/184027909515400/?ti=icl
We absolutely love Bartholomew County Library because Well, what’s not to love. The staff are always friendly and helpful. And there is always something fun to do there. It’s a great place for the whole family to go and hang out and to have something to do. #LibraryLoversMonth
So I just wanted to share this information with anyone who loves to read and who also like to buy things that are from local authors. Gail Pate is a wonderful author from the Brown County area. I have read both her books The Light and Halo. And they are fantastic short read books that would make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for any reader. So hurry out and go get them.
