Our Coffs Harbour families rarely miss an opportunity to get together and share in whatever events or celebrations are planned. World Down Syndrome Day/Month 2008 was no exception.
Sunday 30th March was a beautiful early autumn day, and the family picnic was an overwhelming success with about 70 people, including families and grandparents from as far away as Brunswick Heads, Alstonville, Port Macquarie and Armidale.
From discussions during the day, parents of primary school aged children decided to organise a friendship club, with the children meeting on a monthly basis. - a good outcome from a good day.
