Summer hasn't officially begun, but at the Autism Spectrum Resource Center, the past week has been chock full of fun activities for families with individuals with autism. Tuesday, June 10, 2014, was the first day for parents and people of all ages to gather at a local park, and have a great time. The early morning hours were spent attempting to fly kites, (the winds were gently blowing in all directions), play four square, blow bubbles, and play badminton.
Cold bottles of water were on hand, and provided a refreshing break. Parents were able to visit with each other, and get to know one another.
Thursday, June 12, was an evening for family friendly games of glow bowling, ball toss, badminton, and Nerf tag.
Inside the fellowship hall of an area church, the air conditioned rooms, provided welcome relief from the summer heat.
Friday evening was the monthly Kids Social Night. It was a fun night of pizza baked fresh by Papa Murphy's Pizza, family games, and celebrating June birthdays.
Saturday afternoon, June 14, was the ASRC Splash into Summer 2014 pool party, held at the YWCA. Parents and their loved ones cooled off in the pool, while enjoying playing in the water, and having a grand time.
The ASRC Summer Activities will continue on Tuesday mornings, and Thursday evenings during the remainder of June, and all of July. I look forward to seeing you soon!

The school year may be drawing to a close for area public school districts, if it hasn't already. Warm summer days are already here, even if the official first day of summer isn't on the calendar. The Autism Spectrum Resource Center staff are busy planning activities and family events for individuals with autism, and their families. Summer vacation will kick off with a splash again, a July book fair at Barnes & Noble, and the ever popular ASRC Talent Show, (which will be in its 4th year this summer!); are just several events planned. Stay tuned for further details. See you soon!
