The Arc Minnesota’s 2016 Awards Banquet,  always a highlight of each state conference, was held on September 23rd, at the Shoreview Community Center in Shoreview.  That evening we recognized 11 outstanding individuals and organizations for their successes in creating a Minnesota that increases the inclusion of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families and respects their rights.  Congratulations to all our awards recipients!  They are making Minnesota a state where people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are included, participating, and valued members of their communities.
