The Opelika branch of Children’s Rehabilitation Services will host the sixth-annual “School’s Out Bash” June 1 from 9 a.m. – noon.
Open to all area special needs children, CRS Parental Consultant Sharon Henderson said the event is a fun way for parents and children alike to kick off the summer.
“Basically, it’s a time for us to celebrate the end of the school year and celebrate it with them. This is just a way for families to come out and have a good time, and everything is free,” Henderson said.
Activities during the event include a dance-off between the kids, free food and games and representatives from local organizations to connect parents to vital resources and information.
Henderson added that the event has brought in nearly 200 people in years past and featured special appearances from Auburn University mascot “Aubie” and “Big Al” from the University of Alabama.
According to their website, CRS is “a statewide organization of skilled professionals providing quality medical, rehabilitative coordination and educational support services for children with special health care needs and their families.” The Opelika branch services Chambers, Lee, Macon, Randolph, Russell and Tallapoosa counties.
