Our Board of Directors had its monthly meeting last night. Mike Anthony and Paul Thompson were nominated to join the board. Congrats to both! We think they’d be exceptional contributors to the board and to supporting the mission of E2A.
I had a blast visiting Improv class on Monday night with a fine group of aspiring actors and their wonderful instructor Brianna that are part of Theater Exceptional. I wanted to thank them for including me in the class! Please visit their website http://www.bluebutterflyproductions.org to learn more about their upcoming classes and productions.
I hope everyone is lighting it up blue for Autism Awareness today!
It’s Autism Awareness month! I hope you light it blue, embrace diversity, and plant a tree this month!!
Earth to Autism is in need of Pinky’s spirit and enthusiasm to keep us going so we have asked Pinky to prom. She thought about it, painted over it, and decided with the right boots it could be a fun time! So the boots have been ordered, she’s found a date, and she’s ready to take the crown! We hope you will join us April 13, 2018 at 7pm as we welcome Pinky back for one night only and dance the night away! Don’t forget to order your tickets ($5 per person, $8 for couple/$10 at the door per couple), bring cash for the raffle prize (4 pack of Ray’s tickets) and dress to impress. There will be a prom king and queen for the 70’s, 80’s & now! For tickets call 727-710-0649 or follow the link to Eventbrite on our facebook page.
Currently only 15% of adults with autism are adequately employed in the US. I believe we can change that statistic by creating a model of employment that facilitates opportunities across the spectrum. Our model of innovation, acceptance and hope will introduce a new class of employees into the workforce. Autism is no longer a disability, it’s an ability!
