Excited about Spring and The Annual Dinner

Heather is a great help here at The Arc, and would make a great employee for any Carroll County business.

I really like spring, because it’s the only season that I really like. I only like the color purple, because it’s the only color that I really like. I am really excited about coming to The Arc’s  Annual Dinner on May 14, because I didn’t get to go all the other years.

I like to be with my friends. I am going with my friend, Janet Thomas. I haven’t decided what to wear yet. It depends on the weather.
