TrueNorth in the Community: September 2019

Seussical the Musical event
Seussical the Musical was a huge success!  The 8th Annual event, hosted by the Bill Gladstone Group of NAI CIR, is an exclusive live performance for children with special needs and their families. It is a free and fun family activity in a supportive and understanding environment, with comfortable lighting and lowered sound. Prior to the performance, attendees enjoyed a time of crafts, balloon animals, therapy dogs, tire truck tours and pizza. A big THANK YOU to all who helped to make this event happen!
