Another year, another pairing party for MVHS’ Best Buddies Chapter! Best Buddies is a club that creates opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and people without IDD, to establish meaningful relationships with students they may never encounter otherwise. The Merrimack Valley chapter recently celebrated it’s third annual pairing party where buddy pairs are established for the new school year. The reveal party included team activities such as carving pumpkins, painting, cooking, and enjoying eating a candy feast as a large group. Throughout this celebration the club established goals for the year and planned future trips out into the community to have fun as an inclusive body. Their next group activity will be a McDonald’s fundraiser, at the Fisherville Road location in Penacook, Tuesday, 11/07/17, from 5-7PM to engage in meaningful conversations about the club’s mission, and show off their beautiful friendships!
