March is Developmental Disabilities Month

Illinois Valley Industries Executive Director Stephanie Kessler was Wednesday’s guest on People R Talking and shared some updates of local interest with listeners.

Kessler said March is developmental disabilities month and, to highlight awareness, Illinois Valley Industries will be featuring a series of individual life stories about community and our commonalities. 

She said you can read the first story in this year’s series, Friday, on Illinois Valley Industries Facebook Page

Kessler mentioned IVI’s hosting Coffee & Company, with Beans and Bites, May 18th, at the Chamber Building. She said this community event provides a unique opportunity for the public to be introduced to the business community, mingle, and interact in a valued network of shared learning. 

Kessler added, thanks to a generous donation from the Morris Lions Club, IVI clients will reap the benefits from Health & Wellness programs including YMCA classes, cooking courses, art and music therapy.
