April is World Autism Awareness Month and there are many events going on this month. The BOCES Oak Tree Celebrity Pasta Dinner is happening this Thursday, April 4th from  6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Broome-Tioga BOCES Education Center, 435 Glenwood Road in Binghamton.

Unfortunately for the first time in a very long time, Tara and I won't be able to serve up dinner. You can read all about the dinner and the good they do here.

The Johnson City Police and Firefighters had an Autism Awareness T-Shirt sale. All proceeds will be donated to Alive With Autism which is a local non-profit that provides assistance to the local Austism Community. Read about it here.

So if you're asking yourself: What can I do to help? You can start by wearing blue today. Because today (April 2nd) is the twelfth annual World Autism Awareness Day and many communities are doing their part.

Throughout the country and the world, buildings, home and landmarks will go blue in recognition of people living with autism. Find out more about World Autism Awareness Day here.

Wearing blue may not seem like much but every journey begins by taking that first step. Will you join me by wearing blue today?
