    Massachusetts Statewide Independent Living Council Annual ADA Celebration and Picnic

    With all of the demands of our daily lives, we rarely take the time to gather as a community, to celebrate the gains we've made and to remember those who made the journey with us. We’ll remember those who dreamed the dream and made the movement strong. But mostly, it’s a time to kick back, have some fun in the sun, connect with old friends and make some new ones.
