Valentine's Family Date Night!
Fruit Kebobs
Valentine's Day celebrates true love and romance so
why not celebrate with everyone you love on a totally
awesome Family Date Night!
Make sure to include kids and parents in planning this
totally awesome date. Here are some ideas for you...
• Make Dinner together... maybe some mac n'
cheese, spaghetti or burgers!
• Family game of "Simon Says". This is a fun way to
work on listening and following directions! Start
with simple directions like "stop" or "jump". Build
up to two or three moves like "jump twice and
spin around once". If it becomes too difficult, go
back to one move. Be sure to have everyone in
the family be Simon!
1-2 Bananas- peeled and cut into 1/4" slices
Whole strawberries- washed, dried, tops cut off
1/2 pineapple- cut into 1/2" cubes
Fresh berries- washed, dried, leaves removed
1 bag marshmallows
12 Wooden skewers
To assemble skewers- in any order, skewer through
the center of strawberries, bananas and other tasty
treats. If you would like a little more sweetness, you
can dust with a little powdered sugar or dip in melted
chocolate!

HOLIDAY FUN!
We had a blast the first few weekends of December at
some wonderful events!
Thank you California Pizza Kitchen in Fresno for hosting
our Breakfast with Santa fund raiser! We had a blast and
the breakfast pizzas were DELICIOUS! Because of this
event we were able to raise awareness in the community
and raise some funds! A special Thank You to those
volunteers and servers who helped out!
The following weekend was DSACC's Winter Social- we
had a great time dancing and hanging out with Santa.
There were lots of new faces and we loved seeing you all
there! Thank You to the volunteers who helped DSACC
have a great holiday party!

A Look Back….
Contributed by Denise Allshouse
As we kick off our 15th year of serving our loved
ones with Down syndrome, their families, health
care providers and educators, I thought it would be
interesting for our members to learn a little bit about
the founders of our great organization.
In 1997, Ruth Hutchison called from Exceptional
Parents Unlimited with a request for me to attempt
to put together a group for parents who had children
with Down syndrome. It took two years for me to
feel established enough in the community to look
for founders that might join me in forming a new
society for our families. It also took that time to
realize that not only did our families need a resource
for fellowship and education, but that the healthcare
providers and educators in their lives were in need of
information relating to the best practices for people
with Down syndrome.
In the early months of planning the founders realized
that it would be much easier to begin the organization
with the legal work related to starting a nonprofit
already in place. We met from April of 1999 until
the first public meeting in August of 1999 laying the
foundation for the nonprofit we know today as Down
Syndrome Association of Central California. It was in
January of 2000 that we received notice from the IRS
that our nonprofit status had been approved and we
never looked back.
There were five founders, all with huge hearts
for their loved ones with Down syndrome, who
stepped up to begin the formative process of legally
establishing Fresno Area Down Syndrome Society:
Bobbie Coulbourne, Shannon Coats, Leslie Bergquist,
Carmie Mullen, and myself.
Bobbie Coulbourne, our first Secretary, brought some
great talent to the table because of her background
of working for a nonprofit. To this day, Bobbie works
tirelessly for our families in her role of administrator
of the Parent Training Information Center located
at EPU. She is a great advocate for our friends with
developmental disabilities in the field of education.
Shannon Coats was Vice President of our first group.
Shannon is a registered nurse who works in Tulare and
does home visits with families who have a child with
a disability. Just like all of our founders, Shannon’s
enthusiasm stemmed from her desire to help families
like hers who were lacking a diagnosis specific
resource of information.
Leslie Bergquist was our first Treasurer. Leslie
contributed a great deal of information that helped to
establish the nonprofit status because of her training
as an accountant, and was instrumental in getting the
accounting for us off to a good start. Leslie and her
family moved to Florida shortly before we received
nonprofit status.
Carmie Mullen served as a founder because of her
immense knowledge of our community. In 2009,
Carmie received a unique recognition coined the
Pioneer Award. Carmie’s contributions to the
community in the areas of education and sports,
especially Special Olympics, were barrier breaking.
Her motivations were her two daughters, Deby and
Kathy (sorely missed), both Olympians in their own
right. Needless to say, her community resources were
instrumental in helping us to establish the foundation
of a well connected organization capable of serving so
many of our families in the Central Valley.
Many of you know my story. I am so very blessed
to have been given the opportunity to help in the
creation of such a wonderful organization. My
husband Mike, a physician at Children’s Hospital,
was joined at the hip with me in our quest to truly
provide a quality resource for our loved ones with
Down syndrome, their families, healthcare providers,
and educators. I always tell people that there are five
founding families because without the support of our
spouse and/or families we would never have been
able to pull off the work required to attain our goal of
a establishing a Down syndrome society.
Thousands of lives have been touched because of the
work that was started in 1999. Many of you, from
Modesto to Bakersfield, have played a significant role
in enhancing the quality of life for all people whose
lives have been touched by Down syndrome. Your
loved ones with Down syndrome are truly grateful.
With this in mind, please save the date and plan to
join us for a joyful 15th anniversary gala to be held
on October 25, 2014. For more information, you may
contact me at [email protected]

Una Mirada Atrás…..
Contribuido por Denise Allshouse
Como ya se acerca nuestros 15 años de servir a nuestros
seres queridos con síndrome Down, sus familias, los
proveedores del cuidado de la salud y educadores,
Pensé que sería interesante para nuestros miembros
aprender un poco sobre los fundadores de nuestra gran
organización
En 1997, Ruth Hutchison llamo de la organización Padres
Excepcionales sin Limites (Excepcional Parents Unlimited)
con una petición para mí, de tratar de formar un grupo
para los padres que tenían un hijo con síndrome de
Down. Tomo dos años para que me sintiera lo suficiente
establecida en la comunidad para buscar a los fundadores
que pudieran acompañarme en la formación de una
nueva sociedad para nuestras familias. También tomo ese
tiempo para darse cuenta que no solo nuestras familias
necesitaban un recurso para la educación sino que
los profesionales del cuidado de la salud y educadores
estaban necesitando información relativa con respecto a
las mejores prácticas para las personas con síndrome de
Down.
En los primeros meses de planificación los fundadores
se dieron cuenta que sería mucho mas fácil empezar la
organización resolviendo el lado legal de como formar
una organización sin fines de lucro. Nos juntamos desde
abril de 1999 hasta la primer reunión publica en agosto
de 1999 formando los cimientos de la fundación que hoy
conocemos come Asociación de Síndrome de Down de
California Central. Fue en enero de 2000 cundo recibimos
la notificación del IRS que habíamos sido aprobados como
un fundación sin fines de lucro y nunca miramos hacia
atrás.
Hubo cinco fundadores, todos con un gran corazón y
un gran amor por sus seres queridos con síndrome de
Down. Así fue como se inicio el proceso de legalización
para iniciar la Sociedad de Síndrome de Down del Area
de Fresno. Bobbie Coulbourne, Shannon Coats, Leslie
Bergquist, Carmie Mullen, y yo Bobbie Coulbourne,
nuestra primer Secretaria, trajo un gran talento a la mesa
directiva debido a su experiencia en trabajar para una
organización no lucrativa. Hoy en día, Bobbie trabaja
incansablemente para nuestras familias en su desempeño
como administradora de la formación del centro de
entrenamiento para padres localizado en EPU. Ella es una
gran defensora de nuestros amigos con discapacidades
del desarrollo en el campo de la educación.
Shannon Coats fue Vice Presidenta de nuestro primer
grupo. Shannon es una enfermera registrada que trabaja
en Tulare y hace visitas en casa para las familias que
tienen un niño con discapacidad. Al igual que todos
nuestros fundadores, el entusiasmo de Shannon
provenía de su deseo por ayudar a familias como la suya
que carecían de un recurso especifico de diagnostico de
la información.
Leslie Bergquist fue nuestra primer Tesorera. Leslie
aporto una gran cantidad de información que ayudo
a establecer el estatus sin fines de lucro, debido a su
entrenamiento como contadora fue instrumental en
conseguir que la contabilidad para nuestra organización
tuviese un buen comienzo. Leslie y su familia se
movieron a Florida poco antes de que recibiéramos
nuestro estatus sin fines de lucro.
Carmie Mullen sirvió como fundadora debido a su
inmenso conocimiento de nuestra comunicad. En 2009,
Carmie recibió un reconocimiento singular del primer
pionero. Las contribuciones de Carmie a la comunidad
en el área de la educación y deportes, especialmente
las Olimpiadas espaciales, estaban rompiendo barreras.
Sus motivaciones fueron sus dos hijas, Deby y Kathy
(que en paz descanse) ambas atletas Olímpicas por
derecho propio. No hace falta decirlo, los recursos de
su comunidad fueron instrumentales en ayudarnos
a establecer la Fundación de una organización bien
conectada capaz de atender muchas de nuestras familias
en el Valle Central.
Muchos de ustedes conocen mi historia. Soy muy
bendecida por haber tenido la oportunidad de ayudar
en la creación de una organización tan maravillosa. Mi
marido Mike, un médico del hospital infantil, (Children’s
Hospital) se unió a la tarea de la búsqueda por encontrar
la manera de proporcionar verdaderamente un recurso
de calidad para nuestros seres queridos con síndrome
de Down, sus familias, los proveedores de salud y
educadores. Siempre le digo a la gente que hay cinco
familias fundadoras, porque sin el apoyo de nuestro
conyugue y las familias nunca hubiéramos sido capaces
de sacar adelante el trabajo necesario para alcanzar
nuestra meta de establecer una sociedad de síndrome de
Down.
Miles de vidas han sido tocadas por la labor que se inicio
en 1999. Muchos de ustedes, desde Modesto hasta
Bakersfield, han desempañado un papel significativo
en mejorar la calidad de vida para todas la personas
cuyas vidas han sido tocadas por el síndrome de Down.
Tus seres queridos con síndrome de Down están muy
agradecidos. Con esto en mente, por favor anote la
fecha y planea unirse a nosotros para un alegre 15th
aniversario de Gala que se celebrará el 25 de octubre
de 2014. Para obtener más información, pueden

RELATIONSHIP TRAINING for ADULTS
DSACC is excited to announce RELATIONSHIP TRAINING for ADULTS (18 & older), funded in part by a grant from the Fansler
Foundation. The primary objective of this course will be to provide adults with developmental disabilities information
about relationships; the boundaries and responsibilities associated with them in a teaching setting that will respect
participants' different learning styles and abilities.
The curriculum includes lessons about different kinds of feelings and behaviors that occur in each kind of relationship,
as well as discussions about appropriate public and private talk. We'll explore how relationships grow and move from
friendship to a partner/sweetheart, and learn ways to talk about feelings and solve problems when in a relationship. The
class will also explore how to identify if your relationship has gone bad and examine ways to end a relationship and deal
with your feelings in a healthy way. Family values and sensitivity are of utmost concern and if concerns or specific issues
surface during the course, it will be important to share those with either of the course facilitators. Throughout this course,
participants will have topics that are designed to promote and encourage family discussions. We hope that you will support
this process and be an active participant!
