Thank You, Lafayette Knights of Columbus

Last night, the Knights of Columbus Council 05237 from Lafayette presented a check for $3,000 to help support Imagine!’s Dayspring Community Calendar Activities. Imagine!’s Dayspring Director was on hand to receive the check, along with some good friends of the Knights.

Dayspring’s Community Calendar Activities (CCA) program brings children aged 0-3 with developmental disabilities and delays (and their families) into community facilities such as recreation centers, dance studios, and children’s museums for group play, educational opportunities, and fitness activities with the support of an Imagine! Pediatric Occupational Therapist and an Early Childhood Special Educator. Each session is geared toward encouraging motor, sensory, social, emotional, cognitive, and/or speech and language development. As the Therapist and Educator assist the children, they model for parents the behaviors that encourage and support each child’s individual development in a community play setting. CCA helps build the confidence of parents as their children participate in activities in the community, while empowering community businesses and nonprofits to feel comfortable about welcoming children with special needs.

We are so thankful for the Lafayette Knights for their longtime support of this vital program. It is great to live in a community with such good Knights!
