So on Monday night Nuri, my mother and I attended a Transition Fair at our local high school. A Transition Fair is an opportunity for children in high school who have physical and mental disabilities find out what options they have after they graduate high school. Some options include work opportunities, the local college, and organizations that will help them to transition to life on their own. So we were asked to come and set up a table and talk about CCI!
We had a recent graduate from not far away, Kimmi, come and tell people about her Skilled Companion, Orson III! It was great to see Kimmi again. The last time we saw her she was graduating in September 2008 in the inaugural class for NER's new Miller Family Campus.
We were also joined by fellow puppy raisers Christina and Marianne who brought with them their puppy Ivana (Ivy) and another puppy raiser's pup Dayne! Ivana is also a Golden Retriever, and if you want to get into numbers.....she's 7/8 Golden! Dayne is an adorable yellow lab/golden cross.
As always, we were a big hit! Everyone wanted to come over and play with the dogs. We had a huge crowd gathering around us and the night was a lot of fun. I got a few pictures, so enjoy!
