A Day of Activities and Opportunities
UNITY, Maine - Tonya Emery sat in her wheelchair inside a gymnasium Saturday afternoon, smiling broadly as she swiped her brush and dabbed blue paint onto a tree-stump palette.
Joined at Unity College by 10 other adults with developmental disabilities, the Portland woman said she was having so much fun.
Also on the agenda over the weekend: tie-dying T-shirts, a campfire, rockwall climbing, karaoke and the "flying squirrel" activity involving lifting people into the air with a harness and ropes.
