Saturday, September 24th. 1-3:30 PM.
Olathe Community Center, 1205 E. Kansas City Rd 66061 Show Map
We are switching from picnic in spring to Ice Cream Social during Deaf Awareness Week with all the familiar fun of sponsors/vendors and our popular lucky drawings for our fundraiser! We also won’t be at the park, but at the Olathe Community Center. If you get lost, the Community Center’s phone number is 913-971-8563. Another plus of this day is an Open Caption movie at AMC before or after this event. AMC movie title and time TBD.
The ice cream social is FREE, however, participants are welcome to optionally purchase a day pass for $7 (Olathe resident) or $8 (non-plate resident) for use before during or after the event. Passes include access to all amenities including the aquatics area (leisure pool with zero depth entry, lazy river, 25-yard lap lanes, hot tub, rock climbing walls with four waterfalls and diving platforms, two water slides).
We are inviting people with hearing loss, their families, friends, coworkers, and health professionals from all over Kansas City. It is a great way to network! As always, we’d like to invite you along for the ride — here are a few ways you can be involved:
Join us to socialize, network and enjoy ice cream during this event. Please bring your favorite ice cream topping (syrup, fudge, sprinkles, etc) or accessory (cake, brownies, fruit, etc) to share. We supply the ice cream and bottled water. And for every purchase of Ferro’s Gourment popcorn we earn a small percentage for our fundraiser.
We will have a Sign Up Genius to ask for volunteers and anything else we might need. We will post that here when it is ready.
