EVENT AIMED AT PROVIDING SOCIAL SETTING RATHER THEN TYPICAL 'INTENSE TRAININGS'
Daily Elk Citian
Since the Oklahoma Parent Advocates for Children with Special Needs (OPAC) group's inception last September, parents have been almost overwhelmed with the amount of information available about their child's needs and rights. The group focuses on presenting sometimes complicated information, including laws and services available for children with disabilities, at monthly meetings to help parents better understand the world of kids with disabilities. But this weekend, the group's next official meeting, will be aimed at providing a fun and social setting instead.
Family Fun Day will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 9, at Ackley Park in Elk City.
The event, which is free, will allow OPAC families to spend an afternoon socializing and getting to know each other, Jenny Kauk, co-founder of OPAC, said.
The schedule is as follows:
10-10:30 a.m. – Carousel
10:30-11 a.m. – Train
11 a.m.- 12 p.m. – Mini Golf
12-1 p.m. – Food and Fellowship
Although reservations are not needed to attend the event, the group asks that if you are planning to attend to please RSVP for planning purposes. You may call Jenny Kauk at 580-225-2344 or Latia Murray at 580-799-3353 for more information or to make a reservation.
