To all who helped to make the 3rd Annual Family Fun Day such a huge success. A special thank you to the Copper Country Elks Lodge #404 for providing the funding for the event, Swick Home Services for providing us with a billboard to advertise the event and to Tom and Denise Moyle and the management at the Mine Shaft for making their facility available to us and to all the volunteers who assisted during the event. It was indeed a huge success and was "as advertised" the biggest and best ever.
We are currently in the process of contacting all of the schools in the Copper Country to see what we can do to provide the special education classrooms with any needed equipment or supplies. We hope to be able to purchase items for them that their limited education budgets will not allow.

Parents of children with autism are not looking for sympathy, but hope for understanding. The next time you see a child "misbehaving" in Walmart or the super market, this may not be a "bad" child or a "bad" parent, but it just may be a child with autism who has had a "meltdown" because of over stimulation caused by the number of people, the lights, the noise or all of these things that can be so overwhelming to a child with autism. Don't judge, don't feel sorry, just be understanding!
Persons with autism may possess the following characteristics in various combinations and in varying degrees of severity.
