A Plainville-based non-profit which has served individuals with developmental disabilities and families for 65 years – is hosting its Spring Dance for the first time since 2019. The event is set for Saturday, May 7, from 6 to 10 p.m. at Testa’s, 26 S. Center St. in Southington. A buffet dinner, music with DJ Joe with Audio Visual Anarchy, and dancing will be included.
In keeping with a tradition to honor a business or individual that has supported and promoted the mission of PARC, the John Sullivan Award will be presented. The 2022 honorees are William and Barbara Petit Sr., Plainville residents who have exemplified lives of service to their community. In addition, two PARC individuals will be announced at the dance as the “Shining Stars.”
PARC promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes by providing family centered support, direct services and advocacy. The program is open to people who live in Plainville and surrounding towns.
