8th anniversary of World Down Syndrome Day
March 21, 2013, marked the 8th anniversary of World Down Syndrome Day, a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. Each year the voice of people with Down syndrome, and those who live and work with them, grows louder.
The SMILE on Down Syndrome World Down Syndrome Day Celebration included a Make-A-Friend party, which included a friendship bracelet making workshop from 6- 7pm at the SMILE Center, located at 105 NW 4th, downtown Evansville. This celebration/workshop was open to the public, and we encouraged our community friends to join us.
