With the return to school quickly approaching the ND Autism Connection is planning a back to school picnic set for Thursday, August 18th at Optimist Park in Bismarck.

The picnic is to thank everyone who helped with the walk earlier this summer and also to build awareness and support to families and individuals living with autism.

The picnic is from 6-8pm and will be catered by Taco Del Mar, they ask that you RSVP to get a head count for food and a $5 donation per family would also be appreciated to cover expenses.
