Join us for

National Disability Employment Awareness Month 2022!

GRADS Meeting June 11, 2022

Middlebrook Community Room 10:30 a.m.

Four people were at the Grant/Roberts Area Disability Supports meeting.

ADA Celebration

We will not have an event this summer as Katrina Koeppe is unable to participate. Perhaps a proclamation could be put in local papers with a picture of a mayor signing it. Rachael Johnson will do this.

NDEAM/Sisseton

The National Disability Employment Awareness Month event will be on Thursday, October 6, 2022 starting at 6:00 p.m. at the Family Life Center, 404 West Hickory Street, Sisseton. A catered meal will be served followed by a guest speaker, Robert Anthony. The evening will end with a recognition of Project Skills participants.

Perhaps Sean Athey will make the invitations. Rachael Johnson will send the information to include on the invitations to Char Athey.

Projects

MaryLou Bullert has emailed the schools with the grant information. She will send a follow-up reminder in August.

Business Cards

Charlotte Athey will bring information about business cards from Sean Athey to our next meeting.

Website

We want to have a donation button or other way to encourage donations, Charlotte Athey will ask Cheryl Athey about this, perhaps using PayPal. Could we get a textbox? What about the blog? We tried out the site and sent requests for information. Are questions being answered promptly?

Financial Report

The checking account balance was $3,105.42 in the First Bank and Trust in Milbank as of 4/29/22.

Next Meeting

GRADS will meet on Tuesday, September 20, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. at the Middlebrook Community Room, 902 East Milbank Avenue, Milbank.
