SEPAC members have tried the League for Special Needs on Winthrop Avenue, but to no avail. They used the Recreation Center for a Valentine’s Day party; however, DeBellis said it was very crowded and that they have outgrown that location. Commission on Disabilities Chairman Ralph DeCicco said a new location has been needed for a long time. They would also like to fi nd a community liaison for special needs children and adults to coordinate programs and events. Parents and Recreation Center staff currently manage those tasks. “However, we do it as volunteers in-between our own careers and being parents,” DeBellis said. Commission on Disabilities Member Pauline Perno suggested getting students involved since they have so much energy. Tara Vocino may be reached at printjournalist1@gmail.com. Grand Opening!
