Did you have a good vacation? Our Best Buddies members did! They got together over vacation and went ice skating at Conway Arena in Nashua. Families had a blast together! Conway’s new skate aids were a big hit and they helped new skaters gain confidence on the ice! Thank you to the families and staff that attended! Scroll down to see pictures from ice skating!
Best Buddies is excited for March because it is Best Buddies Month! Our chapter has something planned for each school day and we want everyone to get involved!
