AASCEND’s outreach month went great! We had good response and a good time at both the Dominican University and John O’Connell resource fairs.
Up next is AASCEND’s sixth annual potluck brunch! Come bid a joking farewell to the Asperger’s diagnosis (in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual – the “DSM5″) at AASCEND’s annual celebration of Autism Awareness – and Advancement! – Month.
There will be food, music and community. Bring food to share if you can. All are welcome!
When: Sat Apr 13, 11am – 1:30pm (10am set-up)
Where: The Arc of SF 1500 Howard St. 11th St. SF, CA 94103 map
March will be a month of AASCEND outreach activities and there will be no regularly scheduled general meeting. Instead, join the fellowship and fun at two autism resource fairs on Saturday, March 23! Come join us at our table and help get AASCEND’s important message out. Just show up at the door and mention you are volunteering at the AASCEND table. Admission is free. Volunteers are particularly welcome for the afternoon. These are the two choices:
1) The Autism Resource Fair at Dominican College, 50 Acacia Avenue in San Rafael, 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM. Admission is free and workshops are free to AASCEND table staffers. map
2) The Support for Families Information & Resource Conference at John O’Connell High School, 2355 Folsom St, San Francisco, 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM. Admission is free as are workshops. map
See you there!
