The Youngstown Lions Club invites all individuals born with Down syndrome, and their parents or caregivers, to walk or ride in the Youngstown Labor Day parade. This event begins at noon Monday, Sept 5, at Fort Niagara’s South entrance.
Organizers ask participants to please wear royal blue shirts with yellow. For those unable to walk the short route down Main Street, the Discover Niagara Shuttle will follow and provide transportation.
More information will be posted on the Family and Friends Down Syndrome Association of Niagara Inc. Facebook page closer to the event date.
A press release stated, “Please join the Youngstown Lion’s Club and The Down Syndrome Association of Niagara to raise positive awareness about Down syndrome and facilitate meaningful participation in the community.
“The Lion’s Club of Youngstown’s mission is ‘We Serve.’ ”
