MONROE — The Hudson Valley Developmental Disabilities Service Office recently presented American Legion Post 488 in Monroe with a certificate recognizing its 20 years of service to DDSO by hosting holiday parties for developmentally disabled adults, StrausNews’ PhotoNews reported.
“The legion has graciously provided holiday parties to our clients,” DDSO representative Janet Correa was quoted as saying. “Post 488’s acts of kindness, year after year, make the holidays no much nicer for our clients.”
