World Down syndrome day
March 21, 2018
March 21 is World Down syndrome day (3-21 for the three copies of the 21st chromosome). I would like to encourage the businesses in Hawarden to celebrate Down syndrome awareness with us.
We would like to do a jeans for genes on March 21st where employees could pay to wear jeans, with the proceeds going to New Directions Down syndrome Association.
If businesses do not want to participate in jeans for genes we would encourage them to wear blue and yellow (Down syndrome awareness colors). We would love to see pictures:)
Mayor Porter is doing an official proclamation for the day.
