You might want to change the thread title to read Johnston instead of Johnson. Pat

Elims -

The meetings are the first Tuesday of every month in the school year. They are at 6:30 PM at the Church at Clayton Crossing (usually we don't get started until closer to 6:45 though).

We will be having a Coffee Social Group on Friday, Sept 16th at 9:30 AM at Crossroads Coffee in Benson (at the intersection of Parrish and the railroad track).

We also have an outing to Hubbs Corn Maze on Sept 24th planned from 4 PM until ?

Feel free to have your friend E-Mail me at lg100778@yahoo.com

I have a friend who has a daughter who has Autism.. She lives in Benson. Could she just show up at the meeting on Friday or does she need to sign up some where?

no sign ups are needed for our activities. may be recommended for the Hubbs trip next week so I can send Hubbs a # and we get a group discount though. I look forward to seeing her tomorrow morning.

With Autism affecting 1 in 100 kids (as estimated by the CDC) there are enough of us out there that there is no reason why we shouldn't be able to get together and support each other. I wish I had gotten more proactive sooner when my daughter was younger; I really needed the help, but it was too hard then to find anyone to watch her or to take her anywhere. She has mellowed out some and I hope I can help others.
