You may have noticed Santina and her son Jackson at our meetings. They have a blog which they would like you to check out that describes Jackson’s life with Miller Dieker Syndrome, a type of lissencephaly . The blog is a good way for friends and family to keep updated on Jackson’s progress.
This Sunday at noon is our United Italian Society Family Picnic at Fernbank Park.
We are in the Riverview Shelter (our usual location) with a nice view of the river and hopefully a nice breeze. The shelter is not far from the large playground and bike path for the kids.
Fernbank Park is in Sayler Park, about 11 1/2 miles west of downtown on US 50 / River Road.
The address is 50 Thornton Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45211.
The UIS is providing Italian Sausage sandwiches, plates, napkins and utensils. You bring your drinks and please bring a side dish to share.
This is just a relaxing day by the river with good friends and good food. There are no structured activities so just show up about noon and enjoy the day.
Hope to see you there!
