Wishing All of Our Proud Dads a Happy Father’s Day
June 20 is Father’s Day.
We hope to get our Dad’s group started up again in the late Fall or in early 2022. Our dad’s group gets together at sporting events or restaurants and enjoy themselves and share their experiences of being a Proud Dad of a child with Down syndrome.
If you are interested in joining our dad’s group, email jennie@sharingds.org.
Also, moms who want to get together, we have groups to offer you, too. Email jennie@sharingds.org to be added to our list and when our activities start again, we will be in touch!
