More Alike Than Different
Disability Awareness Fair
SA: April 25, 2009
Did you ever wonder how a blind person sees a movie? Or how a deaf person uses the telephone? Have you ever worked a bionic arm or played basketball from a wheelchair? Did you know that the founder of the Girl Scouts of America, Juliette Gordon Low, was deaf? Or that one of the signers of the Declaration of independence was a person with a disability?
These are some of the interesting things you will learn when you attend the Girl Scouts’ More Alike Than Different Fair and get the answers to all of your questions about living life with a disability.
Join in the games, activities, performances, and demonstrations as artists and presenters teach you how people with disabilities from all paths of life changed the course of history. You can even earn the More Alike than Different patch.
Location: St. Andrews Auditorium, 5649 N. Sheridan, Chicago, Illinois

**If you or your troop is interested in earning the More Alike Than Different patch, call our partners at the Open Doors Organization 773 388-8839 to receive an orientation to the Awareness Activity Guidebook.
This FREE, fact filled guide is both fun and educational. Full of games, puzzles and activities that a scout can do on her own or together with her troop. The More Alike Than Different patch will be awarded at the disability awareness fair on April 25th, 2009 to those Girl Scouts who have successfully completed the challenges of the guidebook.
