iPAD WORKSHOP (ON MONDAY!)
"APP-Y NEW YEAR"
iPad 102: Introduction to Education Apps
6-8pm, Tuesday, January 22 The Arc's Dan Godwin Community Center 2602 McLeod Road, Bellingham
You have the iPad and you have spent hours online reading about a million apps. Your head is spinning...how do you decide which are the best apps to download and purchase?
Don't worry, you're not alone! Almost everyone has had this moment of panic about this exciting technology. We are here to help! This workshop is designed to help you learn more about the popular education apps and select what might be most appropriate for your family member.
Please RSVP: 715-0170 ext 303, firstname.lastname@example.org. Supervised care for family members is available if you RSVP by Friday, January 18.
SURPRISE PARTY FOR SPECIAL DOCTOR
Have you had the opportunity to work with Dr. Scott McGuinness at Peace Health?
He has served our community as a wonderful, dedicated pediatrician for many years and cared for many children who have serious medical issues and/or developmental disabilities. While we are sad to see him leave the pediatric group, we are excited that he will continue his service at the hospital. The Arc of Whatcom County and local families are helping to host a celebration to honor his great service...and we'd love for you to join us! This SURPRISE party for Dr. McGuinness is being held at Peace Health on Sunday, January 20th from 2-4pm.
Please contact Amy: (360) 715-0170, ext 309, email@example.com if you are able to join our celebration or would like more information.
GET TO KNOW THE ARC
Volunteers at The Arc's Halloween Party had a great time providing support and meeting new people.
Perhaps you have already volunteered a few times with The Arc but want to learn more about the various programs and opportunities available.
Or perhaps you have been considering getting involved and just need a little nudge?
Then this fun and quick "Get to Know The Arc" Volunteer Orientation is for you! There are so many exciting things happening with The Arc and we would love for you to be a part of it.
The volunteer orientation will be held from 12pm-1pm on Wednesday, January 23rd at The Arc's Dan Godwin Community Center, 2602 McLeod Road, Bellingham.(If you are at work during that time, feel free to bring along your lunch and learn about The Arc at the same time.)
For more information or to sign up, please call Christine: (360) 715-0170 ext 305 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you and working with you soon!
MLK: JUSTICE FOR ALL!
Martin Luther King spoke out loud and clear for justice. Next Monday is the annual MLK holiday - a perfect day to remember people who have made a difference for self-advocates:
People who spoke up when it was not popular.
People who fought to make laws better.
People who led by example.
People who never gave up.
People who did small but important things.
Progress happens because people worked for it. Let's remember them and continue to promote justice for all!
