Garden Club

Garden Club activities include planting, watering, weeding, and decorating the garden areas in the parking lot of the UPS for DownS office.  These activities are conducted weekly in the summer months, following the Walking Club one-mile walk.  Walkers and their community buddies participate in caring for the garden together.  All ages are welcome.

Do people with Down syndrome have feelings?

Yes. Just like everyone, people with Down syndrome have feelings. They can feel happy, silly, sad, sorry, or upset - just like you. People with Down syndrome enjoy friends and family and can be hurt when someone teases or makes fun of them - just like you.

Can I help my Friend?

Yes! Play with and talk to people with Down syndrome. If they are having trouble playing a game, give them time and a little extra help or ask them what game they would like to play. Be clear in what you are saying. Find out what your friend likes to do. Just hang out together and see what happens. You are more alike than you are different.
