Civitan Services Night at the Arkansas Travelers!
June 12, 2018
Civitan Services spent a beautiful night out at Dickey Stephens Park in Little Rock as the Arkansas Travelers Baseball Team took on the Northwest Arkansas Naturals on June 12, 2018 with a picnic and festivities celebrating our 60th Anniversary!
Attendees were treated to a buffet at the park including ballpark favorites like hotdogs, sausages, popcorn and drinks and were seated in the Civitan Services VIP Section. Before the game began our group had the honor of taking the field and receiving a commendation letter from Governor Asa Hutchinson honoring our milestone anniversary. The commendation, dated June 12, 2018, reads as follows:
“AS Governor, I am pleased to congratulate Civitan Services for 60 years of dedicated service to enhancing the lives of men, women, and children with developmental disabilities across Arkansas. Civitan Services has been a place of care, support, encouragement, and learning for those with disabilities since 1958.
The Civitan Services board of directors and staff actively pursue founder Noel Deer’s dream of inclusion of all individuals. Through the organization’s preschool, adult, and community-based services, individuals with disabilities have become independent citizens.
Civitan Services’ core values of commitment, compassion, and growth further its cause to promote positive awareness of developmental disabilities throughout the state. The organization continues to build a legacy of care and unwavering support for Arkansans with disabilities.
On behalf of the State of Arkansas, congratulations, again, on your 60th anniversary. Best wishes for a memorable event and continued success in the future.
Sincerely, (signed by) Asa Hutchinson”
In addition to this extra special recognition Civitan Services clients Sherri H., Kirstie T., and Pam S., were able to take the mound for the first pitch with Sherri doing the honors and putting a strike right across home plate!
Civitan Services Night at the Arkansas Travelers was an amazing experience that was enjoyed by all and we are already looking forward to next year!
