More than sixty years ago it was a common practice for children with intellectual and other developmental disabilities to be placed in state institutions.

In 1952, 10 brave families wanted a better life for their children. They joined with another group of parents in New York State to establish what we now know as ACHIEVE.

On Thursday, August 31st, it's a night of local wine, craft beer and gourmet fare. It's the 8th Annual Savor the Summer event. It's at ACHIEVE's Cutler Pond location.

While you're enjoying your food and drink, you can admire the beautiful view overlooking Cutler Pond. Live entertainment along with a silent auction will complete the night.

The event goes from 6-9 pm with a firework show at the end. Summer is almost over so let's "Savor the Summer" with ACHIEVE.

To see the list of wineries, breweries and restaurants...and there are many, go here. To buy your tickets for this event, go here. I will be there and I hope to see you too.
