"though our circumstances may change (Any one of us could become disabled tomorrow) our rights and opportunities must never change."  John Kerry, on asking the Senate to ratify the U.N. Convention
on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

We thought this was worth repeating in recognition of the U.N.  International Day of Persons with Disabilities.
Now we are faced in this country with the onslaught of the reduction of business tax incentives to create access and remove barriers and elimination of   tax credits for hiring people with disabilities, veterans and other groups.  These tax incentives and credits are good for business and create a free society.

We need people with disabilities in leadership roles and to make your voice heard!  Call your representatives and senators!  See our Advocacy Alerts!

Disability is a natural part of the human existence and in no way diminishes the right of persons with developmental disabilities to live independently, enjoy self-determination, make choices, contribute to society, and experience full integration and inclusion in the economic, political, social, cultural, and educational mainstream of American society.

The park is located off County Highway M on the southwest shore of beautiful Lake Mendota. 70 boats and pontoons and approximately 300 volunteers are available to provide a quality on-the-water fishing experience for anglers with disabilities.
All food and beverages are provided for the two day event, including a fish fry on Saturday night provided by Yahara Fishing Club. Entertainment is provided by a seven piece band for dancing, toe tapping, and listening.
