COMMITTEE TO HOST ADA ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

COMMITTEE TO HOST ADA ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

To commemorate the 23rd anniversary of the signing of the Americans With Disabilities Act, a celebratory event will be staged Friday, July 26, at the Doña Ana County Government Center.

Coordinated by the ADA Celebration Committee (ADACC) – which comprises several private and public entities that assist people with disabilities to integrate and succeed in our community – the purpose of the event is to provide education and awareness of service providers who assist people with disabilities and their families in Doña Ana County.

The event will feature informational booths, live entertainment and speakers who will share their stories of success despite having physical or mental challenges. An ADA help table also will be on hand.

The event runs from 3-7 p.m., and is free and open to the public.
