The Autism Society is very thankful to Miracle Photography by ShariLynn for chosing us to be the recipients of their amazing fundraiser. We are excited to watch the fall photo shoots unfold at Roca Farms and for the CUTIES FOR A CAUSE calendar to take shape!
Learn more about Roca Farms HERE.
Miracle Photograhpy has a table at Roca Farms every day selling calendars and raffle tickets but unfortunately the sorority that was lined up to help staff the table ended up with a conflict. So we are putting a call out to the community to see if anyone can help volunteer to staff this table during the afternoons from 1 to 5pm. If you are able to volunteer please contact Sharilynn at 402-792-3225 or 402-310-6157.

Looking for something to do during the summer days? Have you heard about the Kids Bowl Free program? This is an affordable option if your family likes bowling. Your child will be able to bowl TWO free games EVERY day and they even have an affordable family plan so the adults can bowl too! Click here to find participating bowling alleys in Nebraska
**The Omaha Support Group has created a meet up time the past couple summers and has found that going right when they open is the best option for our community. Several in the Omaha Support group plan to meet up at Sempecks in Elkhorn on Fridays at 10am. This is a very popular program and the alley does fill up making it pretty noisy later in the day.
Please note that this program is not available for “club outings” so if your group decides to attend you will need to register yourselves and just find each other once you are there.
