The Lewiston/Niagara-on-the-Lake Rotary sponsored a "Rotary Day" Autism Awareness Program last Saturday at Niagara University. Titled, "All About Autism," and presented by the Collaboration for Autism Support and Education, its purpose was to inform the public about autism spectrum disorder and the available resources in the community to assist family members or friends of those affected by this condition.

The workshop was well attended by interested community members and health professionals.
