Thank you to everyone who joined us on
World Down Syndrome Day
Saturday, March 21, 2015
March 21, 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of Wold Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) and each year the voice of people with Down syndrome, and those who live and work with them, grows louder.
DSACO started the day by celebrating with a sold-out crowd of families at Franklin Park Conservatory for a Pancake Breakfast, starring Chris Cakes. Guests had to catch their flying pancakes before enjoying them with other breakfast favorites. After breakfast, families were able to visit the Blooms and Butterflies exhibit.
The evening was celebrated at the 10th Annual Family Scholarship Award Program and Dance at The Boat House at Confluence Park. DSACO honored four (4) indviduals and their accomplishments with scholarships for their continuing education.

After a wonderful dinner, OSU's Students Supporting People with Down Syndrome group cranked up the music for an all out dance party! Fun was had by all.
Thank you to all the families who shared this special day with us!
