About Utah: Without fanfare, the National Ability Center in Park City has taken the 'dis' out of disability
The list goes on and on, but it’s a hard list to find. There is virtually nothing on the National Ability Center grounds, or written up in their website, that draws attention to any of the selfless deeds, and the people who did them, that have made the whole impossible venture possible. Finding out the above history was like searching for Atlantis.
But if they aren’t self-congratulatory, they are sociable. On Saturday, June 1, the National Ability Center will host its fifth-annual Barn Party. The fundraiser, scheduled from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., will include a barbecue, petting zoo, line dancing, mechanical bull riding, parade and saloon — and, most especially, a tribute to the amazing horses and riders in the equestrian program. The public is cordially invited and all proceeds will go straight into the nonprofit’s coffers. Learn more at discoverNAC.org. It’s your chance to come and meet the people tucked out of sight who daily make disabilities disappear.
