A town hallmeeting focusing on the expansion of services for people with Down syndrome is taking place Saturday in Columbia.
The Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City will host the meeting from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at the Childrenís Therapy Center, 525 North Keene St. The town hall is free and open to the public, and anyone who knows someone with Down syndrome is encouraged to attend.
The guild is one of the largest nonprofit organizations dedicated to Down syndrome. The group in Columbia, started by three local moms, is under the umbrella of the larger guild.
Amy Allison, executive director of the guild, said in the news release that, "we feel we can augment the support services provided to the entire mid-Missouri region."
Light breakfast and free child care will be provided.
