Governor to Present Awards at Developmental Disabilities Awareness Celebration

April 14, 2011 | 1:00 PM-1:30 PM | Oregon State Capitol Building | The Governor's Ceremonial Conference Room, 2nd Fl | 900 Court St NE | Salem, OR

With the help of strong advocates and one united voice, we celebrate the growing awareness of Developmental Disabilities and the power of inclusion.

The celebration will begin with a few comments and presentation of awards by Governor Kitzhaber to our DD Champion Award Winners, Representative Arnie Roblan and parent advocate Adelina Martinez.

Following the awards ceremony we will unveil the new DD Awareness Poster reminding each of us that we not only learn from every person who touches our lives, but we leave a mark on them as well.

Please join us following the celebration for fruit punch and cookies!
