Fair Success!
Scioto County Fair
More than 4000 visitors came by the SCBDD Fair booth this year to learn more about the great things going on. We were able to share our growth and progress and WNXT spent two hours at our booth broadcasting live. The Vern Riffe School also stood out at this year's fair with a 96" X 72" display in the the school exhibit building. Thank  you to everyone who volunteered and/or visited our booth and school display. 
Color Run Success
Color Run
Several staff and individuals from the Scioto County Board of DD and STAR participated in the first annual Color Run, sponsored by Portsmouth West River Days Candidate Kelsey Davis. The event was part of the community service project for the River Days candidates. Davis chose Special Olympics and Vern Riffe Cheerleaders to donate the proceeds of the event. Nearly $1000 was raised. The event has now been adopted by the Friends of Scioto DD and will be an annual fundraiser for the organization. Participants Alex Sudbrook and Portsmouth Daily Times Reporter Joe Pratt are shown in their colorful, end-of-event attire.
