A Message from the Executive Director:
   We had another sell-out crowd for Boots on the Brazos, The Arc's annual fundraising event that was held April 1st at the Waco Convention Center.  Thanks to the generosity of the many businesses and individuals who supported
the event, $69,000.00 was raised to help support people in our community with intellectual and developmental disabilities!
   The Cooper Foundation has generously granted The Arc $70,000.00 to purchase a new bus with a wheelchair lift.  The new bus will enable The Arc to fully include people who use wheelchairs and walkers in all of our programming!  Our thanks to the Cooper Foundation for their continued support!
   The Opportunity Center will expand to 5-day a week programming for the summer.  The Center also has a new sign designed by TSTC students.  Go by 1825 Morrow Avenue and check it out!
   The Kiwanis Club of Waco will hold its annual golf tournament benefiting The Arc summer camp on May 18th at Twin Rivers.  Hole sponsorships are available for $125.00 or put together a team and play for $400.00!
