Join us for a Water Lantern Celebration to honor our friends and neighbors of all abilities!

Saturday, October 5, 2019

Plattwood Park, Winthrop Road, Deep River, CT

4:30 – 7:30  Rain or Shine


Join members of the community at Plattwood Park to celebrate the lives of individuals of all abilities. We will witness the reflective beauty of hundreds of lanterns inscribed with personal greetings and memories to lift up and honor those in our communities who bravely face and overcome challenges due to disability every day.

ALC’s mission is to change the lives of young adults with autism, intellectual and developmental disabilities by creating employment and social opportunities that nurture their unique skills, strengths and preferences. These opportunities are now available at ALC’s flagship program, The Nest Coffee House. The Nest recently opened on Main Street in Deep River and provides a welcoming, safe and purposeful space for everyone to enjoy.
