The annual Orange County Fair is in full swing and we had a wonderful opportunity through
'friends of the fair' day to attend. The Orange County Fair sponsors one morning for persons with disabilities to attend the fair for free. The rides open early for them and are free as well. Our students look forward each year for this special morning that is 'just for them'. Hope University's very own performing musical group The Hi-Hopes, was live on stage for all to see and hear.
Some of the fair highlights were:
"I liked the horn sounds from the bumper car ride." Ben Simendinger.
"The monster truck ride!" Fred Mezzo.
"I really enjoyed shopping." Michelle Emory.
"The bumper cars were the best ride." Ana Pinedo.
"I liked the bumble bee ride." Allison French and Bradley Clayman.
"The monster truck ride was fun!" Jennifer Doyle.
