Celebration of the Americans with Disability Act (ADA)

If you can attend this event and are inclined to pass around some CDs, please let me know. I've got a CD that can be prepared for this event and would love to have someone there to hand them out to people. A small donation would be nice to prime the pump in this effort.

The CD has a book in PDF format, Time Out, I Didn't Hear You.The book helps those with hearing issues join their scholastic sports teams.
