The ARC Christmas party was held at St. Mary’s School in Madelia on Sunday, Dec. 2.
The celebration has been a long standing annual event in the area and includes music, bingo, a musical chairs gift game and a visit from Santa.
It also gives members of the ARC community a chance to socialize with one another.
ARC was established in 1950 and aids individuals with disabilities in their journey toward living an independent life.
They also work to identify and rid the public of negative perceptions regarding intellectual and developmental disabilities and ensure that public policies for individuals with disabilities are fair.
Individuals who seek help from the ARC are provided with employment, education and activities.
