The Meredith Autism Program is celebrating 20 years of service with a Carnival Fun Fair on Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM. There will be fun for the WHOLE family, and it's open to the public. This event will not only serve as a celebration of MAP's 20 years, but will share two other purposes: 1. an autism awareness event for the community and 2. a fundraiser to establish a scholarship fund for MAP. We hope that you'll make plans to join us!
