Your big fund raiser of the year now this at this stage supports arc but we all know. The status stressed today that it anytime there's any time for cuts you guys are some of the first on the line to get hurt me and in and get paired back by it. And it's not like you there's an extravagance to begin with so. All the things we do and all the money we raised makes a difference between a really bare bones operation and doing it the way that you guys like to run and the way it should be. Two really good idea to take proceeds from fund raisers like this and get people on the community to do things hope and wishes. Things that they wanted to do things that really adds life. And outlook there's a pressure in Tallahassee to spend money all different ways they're really I F. I I'm just in you know me I don't promote big government but this is something that is suspect critically important and make sure. Bad things AG Arco are funded and funded properly because. We all agree that we you know people they cannot completely take care of themselves that's where we step in and wanna open and an ark does a job I mean. Before them before our came along. People were kept basically for lack the miniature antenna warehoused and price that's not good but arc is all about like I said. People living to their potential Christ I would I would set for every one. While the 21 century is gonna be people from mild disabilities century. And it in the twentieth century you know group palms community based living. Only started in the late seventies early eighties saw as a culture we're just getting used to this we're just finding out what it's like to really involve people. With developmental disabilities into our culture and putting them into meaningful roles. And have found that they expand their social lives and impact on society. As much as possible. Stand it it it actually teaches you a lot about yourself too when you spend some time around people. Like that you learn about he just.
