The Special Games event was a fun-filled day for individuals aged 4-70 with physical, intellectual, behavioral and communication challenges. Events were followed by a delicious BBQ lunch. Events included bowling, hula hoop, basketball, hop-scotch and more. Award ribbons were plentiful at the end of the day and all of the volunteers, participants and sponsors were so happy to be back after a small hiatus due to COVID concerns. The next Special Games are planned for September 2023.
