INSPIRE offers Community Celebration Day this Saturday

INSPIRE Stokes County will host a special Community Day Saturday, April 22, from 2 until 4 p.m. at Germanton Park. The event is intended to celebrate the desire for more installed adaptive playground swings for individuals with physical disabilities. Last year the group was able to purchase and install a swing frame housing two wheelchair platform swings and two full body molded seat swings. The group plans to host informational booths to help raise awareness within the community about the resources offered for persons with physical and developmental disabilities, as well as highlight some of the programs that INSPIRE has to share. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy games, crafts, and food.

For more than six years now, INSPIRE Stokes County, a non-profit community group, has been working to become a resource for youth and adult individuals in Stokes County living with special needs, whether it be developmental disabilities or physical. They have offered social events, summer art camps, and even provided parent resource meetings. More recently, they have worked to raise funds to purchase and install special needs adaptive playground equipment in a Stokes County park. As of last year, the group was able to install the first piece of recreational equipment and will have a second anniversary celebration in the park, on April 22 from 2-4 p.m. Donors, sponsors, community members, special guests, and more are invited to join the celebration. The event will have games, crafts, food, and loads of fun times!
