This Saturday, November 12, in Dundrum House Hotel, Down Syndrome Tipperary will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Down Syndrome Ireland (DSI).
DSI was set up by parents of children with Down Syndrome and today it is dedicated to being the primary source of information and support to people with Down Syndrome, their families and the professional community, working towards an improved quality of life for members along with a respect and acceptance of people with Down Syndrome as valued members of Irish society.
DSI has over 3,000 member families and 25 branches nationwide and has grown from modest beginnings in 1971 into a truly national organisation. It is the single biggest group concerned with the welfare of people with a learning disability in Ireland.
Down Syndrome Tipperary decided to celebrate the 40th anniversary with a Dinner Dance. We would like to invite all teenagers/adults with Down Syndrome and their families, current members and people who may have been associated with DSI Tipperary over the years to come along for a great night of celebration and catch up with old friends.
If you know of families in your area please let them know about the night. Teenagers/adults with DS whose families are paid up members will be free on the night as this is their Christmas night out. All non member teenagers/adults and their families are invited. So spread the word and come along
Tickets are €25 and can be purchased from our Secretary Sandra at 087 9821047.
