Special Olympics

I am proud of Belladonna.

Belladonna wants to volunteer to help with Special Olympics.  She is pretty excited about it and has even recruited a few of her friends.  Attached is the email Bella and I received.

Dear Mr and Ms Doppelgänger

It was a pleasure speaking with you today.  Eaton Area Field Day for Special Olympics will be on Tuesday, May 13th at Olivet High School.  We have a variety of options for anyone looking to volunteer on that day:

·         Registration (morning)
·         Events (various times available)
·         Classroom partners (all day)
·         Lunch distribution (mid-day)
·         Ribbon distribution (various times available)

Please, let me know if you and/or your daughter are able to help out and which events your most interested in helping!

Actual contact information included so any reader who wishes to volunteer can easily do so.  Picture is "borrowed" from the brochure for the 2014 State Special Games.

One issue that Belladonna needs to sort out is to find a way to have the volunteering count as a day at school.  Eaton Rapids has a track meet against our arch rival Charlotte.  Belladonna will not be able to compete unless she can find a sanctioned way for her to be a volunteer at Special Olympics.

Belladonna asked her coaches for guidance.  My hope is that they can find a way make her good-to-go in terms of having the time count as academic experience.  Perhaps she can take some pictures and write an article for her school paper.
