Fun day for families at Aldor Acres

When Melissa Anderson turned 25 in 2013, instead of doing something for herself she decided, along with her family and friends, to organize a fun day for families with special needs children at Aldor Acres. The Anderson family farm is a popular family destination, and a place to learn about farming. This is the second year for the event, which took place on Sunday, Aug. 24. All proceeds go to Special Olympics. Her motivation for creating the event was wanting to see smiles on the children’s faces.
