A DAY IN THE RING

 

July 29, 2020

 

Hello everyone!!  I hope you all are enjoying your summer! Due to Governor Mike DeWine’s announcement on Tuesday, July 28, 2020, that all county fairs are being reduced to a junior fair only, it saddens me that I have to send you this letter.  The Corona Virus has taken its toll on this country, our state and our county.  With that being said, A Day in the Ring, which was scheduled for this year during the Brown County Fair is now cancelled.  Again, thank you for your support in making this so successful the past 2 years.  Hopefully COVID-19 is under control by this time next year and I will see you all in the ring.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Stable Account: A savings account for those with disabilities

FixTheList.info: The initiative to modernize Ohio’s failed Medicaid Waiver waiting list.

"People with developmental disabilities and their families have repeatedly told us Ohio's waiting list for Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waivers is overly complex and in need of simplification.  The current waiting list confuses people with developmental disabilities and their families, misleads advocates, and hinders efforts by policymakers to direct resources to where they are needed most..."
