OSWEGO, NY – As the Oswego County Autism Task Force gears up for the fourth annual Ã¢â‚¬Å“Family Fun WalkÃ¢â‚¬Â for Autism this April, feedback and suggestions were welcomed at a recent planning meeting from a young participant of previous years.
Minetto fourth grader Arlo Olson has attended the event each year with his mother Dinah who serves at the task force treasurer.
Arlo shared many valuable ideas and suggestions that could help the event grow and expand activities for children and parents.
Arlo made suggestions about childrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s activities, marketing, and raffles for this yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s upcoming walk.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hearing ArloÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ideas gave our task force additional insight that we have missed over the years as organizers,Ã¢â‚¬Â noted OCTAF chair Julie Chetney. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are seriously considering some of his suggestions for this yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s event.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The Ã¢â‚¬Å“Family Fun WalkÃ¢â‚¬Â is planned for April 24 at Leighton School and the Wilber Track and Field in Oswego.
