Thank you to all that helped in anyway.

This is our 42nd year having the party for the special people. They come from all over and most are in costumes. Their counselors tell us this is the highlight of the year. They start planning on what they will wear next year right after this year’s party. Everyone should come to one of these. It sure makes you appreciate your own life. How awesome it is to see them all dancing and having fun. This is why Totera and Richard have been doing it for 42 years, you can’t let them down. Love to all.
