I am really excited to share our next Activity Bag with you!! It will be a shirt like the one below modeled by The Arc’s own Scott Smith 🙂

The great news is the first 60 consumer members of the Tippy Arc who RSVP will receive their shirt FREE thanks to several generous donors. We have 60 shirts of various sizes and it will be first come first serve. Once these 60 shirts run out, we will take orders for shirts in sizes small through x-large Consumers $10 each, Families, staff and professional members of The Arc $20. We can get larger sizes up to 4X for an additional $3 charge. We will start taking orders for purchased shirts on August 20th.

These shirts are for MEMBERS of The Arc of Tippecanoe County only at this point. Not sure if you are a member, go to our website www.arcoftippecanoe.orghttp://www.arcoftippecanoe.org and fill out a free membership form. These forms are electronically sent to us so we will have them immediately. All RSVP’s will be checked against the membership list. Remember if you attend Adult Recreation, All Arc Events, Aktion Club or Best Buddies you should have an individual membership.

To RSVP send an email with the names of the Arc Consumer member to rsvp@arcoftippecanoe.org with the t-shirt size needed. We will pick up t-shirts on Thursday, August 20th at the Purple shelter on Scott Street at Columbian Park from 4:30 to 5 pm.

When you RSVP you will get an email back from Kathy stating she has received your email and confirming your t-shirt size. You will need to have a copy of the email to pick up your shirt.

Special thanks to the Smith family for developing this project for us.
