March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

The 2015 theme for DD Awareness Month is “Can Do, Like You! The Darke County Board of Developmental Disabilities and Darke County Special Olympics invite you to join in for a night of fun and connection between citizens of Darke County. The agencies are again partnering in celebration and recognition of the many individuals throughout the community who receive services that help them make the most of their abilities, as well as to raise public awareness about their challenges and barriers to success. We encourage learning more about the people in this county who have developmental disabilities, and to recognize that all of us have talents that we can offer to make our community a better place to live, work and play.

On Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 6:45 p.m., the Versailles School District will host an exhibition of skills with local citizens, educators and business people partnering with each of the three Special Olympics basketball teams – the Warriors, Slammers and Dawgs, for a friendly game of basketball. Please come out and join us for the 2nd annual Community All-Star Game! The game will be held at the Versailles Middle School gym.

The event is free, however, donations of any amount are welcome and all proceeds will benefit Darke County Special Olympics. Please contact the Darke County Board of DD at (937) 548-9057 or email for more information.
