Visit with other families who have children with special needs at the group’s welcome event on Saturday, October 8, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., at Augsburg Park, 7000 Nicollet Avenue in Richfield. Free and open to any family interested in learning about the support group. Read more about the group at blm.mn/ecseconnect.
