Ms. Bobbie's Vision: The Origin of 'Special Tuesday'
Three decades ago, Ms. Bobbie had a vision to create a safe backyard play space where her grandson and his special needs friends could experience a true sense of belonging. Officially titled the “Beau Porta Special Tuesday” in honor of Ms. Blanchard's late grandson, the program continues to reflect her vision. Fueled by our deep affection for the program, the VA Board of Directors made a unanimous decision to add Special Tuesday to our Summer Program lineup.
Our commitment is clear: to consistently secure local funding and ensure the continuous availability of quality programming for our special needs community.
