'Special Education Kids Day' a terrific success

The 2007 Special Education Kids Day held at Pelco on May 4 was a great event (story May 5), and an example of what wonderful things can happen when people work together toward a great cause.

There were many local agencies and organizations that helped make this a memorable experience for the severely disabled attendees. Law enforcement and emergency services, companies and individual volunteers from throughout the Valley and the Fresno County Office of Education worked together for a great cause, and the results were fantastic.

The logistics of this event could make anyone's head spin, but the event came off as a huge success, much as it has in the two previous years it has been held. It took a lot of hard work (as well as a lot of crossed fingers to keep the rain at bay), but every minute was worth it when we saw the excitement and happiness in the eyes of our special guests that day.

I am proud to have been able to be a part of a group that made that happen and would like to thank everyone for their efforts and participation.
