The Arc of Katy is planning our 30th birthday celebration with a car parade and Facebook and YouTube live events beginning at 3:30 pm on Monday, Aug. 3 — recognizing an important milestone while practicing friendly social distancing in response to ongoing public health threats of COVID-19.
We’ll hold a birthday celebration car parade through The Arc of Katy facility parking lot for participants, members, staff, volunteers, and current and past members of our board. In addition, we will simultaneously have a 30-minute 30th birthday live-streamed celebration event on Facebook Live and YouTube Live.
Those who want to participate while socially distancing in person are invited to decorate their car or truck and join the lining up of vehicles that will begin facing north near the intersection of 9th Street and Avenue C in Old Town Katy at about 3:10 pm. We will have a goodie bag for founders, participants, volunteers, and staff who participate. Let us know if you plan to parade with us. RSVP here or call (832) 759-7052. Even if you forget to RSVP or don’t have time to decorate your vehicle, please join in our parade. We look forward to seeing all our participants, families and supporters.
The Arc of Katy was created 30 years ago by family members and teachers determined to ensure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities had opportunity to fulfill their potential as included, respected and active members of our community throughout their lifetime, and to build a network of support for families.
With generosity of our community, we have delivered opportunities for hundreds of people with I/DD and their families throughout the past 30 years. With your ongoing engagement, we continue to maintain and expand programs and build new programs to help more children, teens, adults with I/DD in our growing community.
It is time to celebrate and recognize our founders, participants, and supporters for all we achieved together as we focus on plans for a bright future.
