The Down syndrome Development Council (DDC), in Lake County Illinois, is having its 9th Annual Buddy Walk this coming Sunday, September 16th. It's being held at Lambs Farm in Libertyville, Illinois from noon to 5 pm; the walk will be at 1:30 pm. The DDC has a full and fun-packed day, including "Elk Grove Superstar gymnasts, figure skaters, cheerleaders, Spring Grove Flying Dragons Karate team, (all awesome individuals with Down syndrome), inflatables, petting zoo, Bubba the Art Bus, music, food, games, raffles, tons of advocacy and support groups with their information on hand, and much more!!!"
Susie and I will have an It'll Fit'll booth there. Helen will be there too and some of Helen's buddies/siblings/loved ones. Please stop by. We'd love to meet you guys. We'll also be taking measurements - or helping you take measurements, if you'd prefer. So come by and get a tape measure and a bouncy ball! Those measurements will augment our existing modest database and will help us better understand growth patterns and dimension ranges and - ultimately - assure that we meet the promise of the clothes we'll produce: "It Will Fit Well."
As of this moment, weather.com predicts a high temperature of 67 degrees in Libertyville on Sunday. That may well change between now and Sunday, but even with a few degrees shift either way it still sounds like a lovely fall day. We hope to see you there.
