MPCC to host holiday party for special needs individuals

Memorial Park Community Center, 510 Bert St., will host a free holiday party for individuals with special needs on Thursday, Dec. 16 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. All ages are welcome.

Participants will have the opportunity to decorate Christmas cookies, make a holiday craft, watch a movie and enjoy light snacks. Caregivers are welcome to attend, as no personal care will be provided.

The holiday party is part of a concerted effort by Parks and Recreation to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities through programming. MPCC staff member Rachel Malone is a certified therapeutic recreation specialist and former president of the Therapeutic Recreation Student Association at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She currently is leading a series of therapeutic classes and programs.

Preregistration is required by Dec. 13 in person at MPCC or by calling 423-434-5749.
