Hi everybody, the Heart of Illinois Down Syndrome Association is hosting a Spaghetti Dinner at the ITOO hall. The admission is $7.00 for adults and $5.00 for children and the event is from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Stop in for dinner at anytime and tell your friends!
They are also looking for volunteers to help out in various capacities throughout the event. If you go to the link above, they have more information about the event and a link to sign up to volunteer. I have already signed up to do trash cleanup from 11:00 to 1:15. This is a nice chance for all of us to volunteer together. If you do volunteer, post in the comments when you are volunteering and what you are doing so we can make sure to say hi to each other at the event.
We also have another way we can help out. They are doing a bake sale at the event as well and are looking for donations of baked goods. Breads, brownies, cookies, chocolate treats, layer cakes, pies, cinnamon rings, cupcakes/muffins or trail mixes are all needed. I plan on baking something and if anybody else wanted to as well that would be great. They want the donations to be dropped off early so I will just drop everything off when I go in to volunteer. If other members would like to make something for the event, we should arrange for me to pick everything up beforehand and we can give them as one large donation from the Peoria Secular Humanist Society. I might even host a "baking party" the day before.
In summary, we can help out here by attending the dinner, volunteering to help with the dinner or baking goods beforehand to donate. Feel free to email me with any questions.
