Join us for our fourth annual summer picnic at Shawnee Mission Park! Our biggest event of the year will offer FREE food and drinks, booths hosted by local organizations with hearing loss resources, and a chance to meet others in your community who are familiar with hearing loss. We have some awesome vendors lined up, including:
KS Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
MO Assitive Technology
If you are interested in hosting a booth to share your resources with the hearing loss community, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, May 19. We’d love to have you!
This year, you will also have a chance to win some awesome raffle items, including:
Switched at Birth DVD
One year free membership to HLAA
… and more!
Funds from the raffle will help send steering committee member Lucy Crabtree as the HLAA-KC delegate to the HLAA National Convention in Rhode Island. We look forward to learning from her experience when she returns! Extra funds from the raffle will also go toward equipment costs for our regular meetings and printing costs for promotional materials. If you would like to donate an item to the raffle, please send an email to email@example.com and let us know by Friday, May 19.
Shawnee Mission Park rests on 1,236 acres and boasts a beautiful 120-acre lake and other exciting amenities such as nature trails, play areas, a disc golf course and an archery range! We look forward to hosting our picnic there and hope you’ll join us for the fun!
Dinner will be served at 5pm in Shelter #8. Meat, chips and drinks will be provided. Dessert and side dish contributions are welcome, but not required.
Please RSVP so we can be sure to have enough food for everyone! Either join the event on Facebook or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you there!
