On Friday of the May session, each agency representative who were previously interviewed by phone participated in a "speed dating" activity with each of the Partner groups.
Each Partner group created additional questions for each of the representatives.
It was a great chance for families and adults with developmental disabilities to begin to build relationships with each of the representatives.
It also allows for the development of relationships between those who access services and those who have either a responsibility to implement services or provide oversight or advocacy of the service.While Partners learned about each agency and their representatives, the Partners also provided tremendous education to each of the agency representatives.At the conclusion of the "speed dating" activity the agency representatives and Partners enjoyed a chance to socialize and eat cake that was graciously prepared by Clyde, a gifted baker who aspires to own his own bakery someday. A big thanks to all of the agency representatives who attended.Never, ever go on a date without taking some mints. Keep things real though and keep your flirting to short, sharp bursts - the aim should be to get out there and date for real, don't forget.They'll help keep your mouth minty-fresh (handy for if you get close), and they're much more polite than chewing gum. All of the sites we list allow private, anonymous online chat and messaging.
It allows you to practice your flirting and get while remaining totally anonymous and safe.

Information from each of the interviews was compiled and given to each Partner.
