"A community can be judged by how they treat the neediest in their group. We should be proud of how we've addressed the needs of people with disabilities in our community."

Dear Friends,

Welcome fall!!  After a brutally hot summer I certainly am welcoming some cooler days and nights. I hope everyone had a wonderful summer spent with family and friends. For those who traveled, I hope the memories made will last you a lifetime.
I would first like to thank all who helped in the letter writing campaign to their local leaders to save ucpn and other not for profit organizations from detrimental cuts.  Without teamwork, the letter writing campaign would not have been such a success.
I am very pleased to say that our very own Micki Saracino is being honored at our Fashion Fantasy this year. Micki has done an extraordinary job not only as the editor of Action Dispatch, but as a valued member of the Merrick Auxiliary and board member on Council for many years.  I am so grateful to Micki for all that she does to help ucpn and proud that she is a member of the Council Board. Please join us for an evening of fun, good food and fabulous fashions by attending Fashion Fantasy on Oct 16th at the beautiful Chateau Briand.
There are many wonderful events that will be taking place during this upcoming year. Please check the calendar of events to see what may interest you. The ladies of our Council Board and the auxiliaries work extremely hard to make these events as exciting as possible but depend on your attendance to make them successful.
Your continuing support of ucpn is most appreciated and we always welcome new members. Please feel free to contact either myself or the Council Office for any information or questions that you may have.

Sincerely yours in CP,

Karen Kiefel, President
Council of Cerebral Palsy Auxiliaries
