Mayor leads story time at Kids Kampus

Posted: Friday, April 1, 2016

Huntington Mayor Brooks Fetters led a special Story Time session on Wednesday, March 30 at Pathfinder Kids Kampus, 435 Campus Street. The session was part of the statewide celebration of March as Disability Awareness Month. John Niederman, president of Pathfinder Services, and Mayor Fetters read a book about inclusion to preschool age children celebrating this year’s theme: “Inclusion is Within Everyone’s Ability.”

Throughout the month of March, various organizations like Pathfinder Services have participated in similar activities statewide. Locally, Pathfinder Services held a traveling 50th birthday party, received a Mayoral Proclamation in celebration of the month, the Joyful Songsters integrated choir performed at a Mad Ants game, a spirit week was held and Pathfinder Teens on the Town had a free movie outing at the Huntington 7 Theater.

Each March Disability Awareness Month is celebrated throughout Indiana and given that adults and children with disabilities represent slightly more than 19 percent of Indiana’s population, disability awareness is important for all of us. Led by the Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities, the goal of Disability Awareness Month is to increase awareness and promote independence, integration and inclusion of all people with disabilities.
