Over 100 Years of Dedicated Service
ST. CHARLES—A fundraiser for HorsePower Therapeutic Riding was held at St. Charles Bowl on Saturday.
Thank you to Christ Community Church’s DeKalb Campus for coming to HorsePower in Maple Park for their Super Second Saturday Volunteer Days on June 9 and July 14.
MAPLE PARK—Maple Park resident Carrie Capes said she learned very early on with Max, her 11-year-old son with multiple disabilities, that “a child with a disability really and truly needs a village.”
A key component to the success of many organizations is their team of volunteers. At Blazing Prairie Stars, a Maple Park therapeutic
equestrian center, this is especially true.
Blazing Prairie Stars, a therapy farm in Maple Park, is looking for volunteers 16 and older who have at least one yearâ€™s experience with horses and enjoy working with children.
ELBURNâ€”Thanks to the Elburn Leos, Max Capes of Maple Park will have a new dog next summer, specially trained to assist this special-needs youth in daily living.
â€œSome days we are all just in tears when we donâ€™t have relief.”
REGIONALâ€”Local families with developmentally disabled children will be among those whose lives will be drastically affected if the state slashes social services funding to reduce its budget deficit.
