Last week we all went to the police station for a tour. This was a fun activity for People First. I learned about crimes, and money safety, and when to call 9-1-1. They said to only call if it’s and emergency. We met a lot of police men. They showed us all over the building. We saw the dispatch room, there were 3 people working. They catch the bad people.
Today is our Pizza Party at TURN Community Services We are celebrating 6 birthdays. It is fun to get together for pizza every month. We are gonna have a good time, it is fun to hang out with people. My favorite pizza is vegetarian and plain cheese with a Diet Coke.
The Canyons Transition Academy in Salt Lake City have started a chapter for their young adult students. We had a fantastic first meeting and the self-advocates created their name and voted in their officers. They will be taking a break over summer and will be back September 13th. We hope to see some of them over the summer at the South Valley meetings and at events across the valley!
