Grab a fall jacket, and come join us in a region near you for ice cream at the park! Families, Professionals, and D/HH Adults--all are welcome!
Northern Virginia area friends, meet at the Ellanor C Lawrence Pond Shelter between 3-5pm. The shelter is located next to the park's pond and across the street from Cabell's Mill. There will be free prepackaged ice cream sandwiches and popsicles for all who attend. Stop by the shelter when you arrive to check in and meet our Northern Virginia board members Dessie and Jill!
Fredericksburg area friends, meet at the pavilion near the playground at Old Mill Park between 12:00 and 2:00 pm. There will be prepackaged ice cream cones and sandwiches for all who attend. Stop by the pavilion when you arrive to check in and meet our Fredericksburg board member Alicia!
Richmond area friends, meet at Twin Hickory Park between 3:00 and 4:30 pm. There will be a BLUE BUNNY ICE CREAM TRUCK onsite handing out free ice cream novelties of your choice for anyone wearing one of our Virginia Hands & Voices stickers. The truck will have over 50 ice cream choices - something for everyone! Park in the lot across from the large playground, past the Twin Hickory Library building. Stop by the pavilion in the center of the playground area when you arrive to get your stickers, and meet our Richmond area board members, Gianina and Teri!
While Virginia Hands & Voices hosts some of our own events, we often take advantage of, and meet at, programs offered by other organizations that will benefit our members. We do our best to keep this page up to date, but we encourage you to visit our Facebook page for the most current information.
We seek to connect children with other children and families with other families. Often, through fun, family-centered activities we make strong friendships and realize we are not alone on the journey.
Have you thought, "I'm confused, but I'm too afraid to ask," during an IFSP, IEP or 504 plan meeting. Do you ever wish you could just talk to someone who's a few steps ahead of you on this journey or a professional in the field of childhood hearing loss? Virginia Hands & Voices seeks to provide opportunities to learn and explore with others like you.
When will Hands & Voices be in your area?
