Farewell Ally! Hello New Year.

For those of you who don't know Ally, she jump started the disABILITY Enlightenment Project and she finishes her final year at Stonehill this week. Ally has done a great job putting the group out there and creating a dialogue about disABILITIES, so I would like to commend her and thank her for contributing so greatly to a project that I hope to see grow and kept viable.

With people and individuals being slandered in emails, in listservs, in dorms, and even in class, disABILTY education still proves itself necessary. Next year, The disABILITY Enlightenment Project will continue to educate the community about disABILITIES; additionally, it aims to aid the community. Even though Ally will be leaving us, she did not leave us without helping us produce a promising possible agenda for this upcoming year. With hope, our agenda includes a prominent famous speaker, a comedian, a movie series, a poster presentation, an attendance to Deaf Advocacy Day, an attendance to a concert, volunteering at the Hope House, helping out with Special Olympics, volunteering to shuttle people with disABILITIES, and hosting a disABILITY symposium for college students in the region. I hope that after seeing what we aim to do, you will want to take a part in this project and aim with us! The more interest we have, the more events we can do!

To Ally and our additional seniors, farewell and good luck! We wish you the best.

To those returning to Stonehill next year, keep a watch out for emails and blog posts over the summer. If you have any thoughts or possible events that could benefit the group or could enlighten the community, we'd love to hear them and love for you to contact us. We hope you have a GREAT break, and we hope to see you in the fall!!!!
