On Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019, Autism Outreach Fellowship hosted its Ninth Annual Holiday Festival at Unity Village Silent Unity. Quite a number of families with special needs attended the Festival and were treated to a light brunch, lots of gifts and prizes, and several arts and crafts projects.

A visit with Santa Clause was the highlight of the Festival, and a number of the participants returned over and over again to remind Santa what they had asked him for Christmas! Everyone had a wonderful time and enjoyed meeting and talking with other families with special needs in an environment created just for them.
