Special Day for Special Kids
 
Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary Club will host its
34th annual Special Day for Special Kids on
Saturday, February 24, 2018
9:30 am until 1:30 pm
at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park
7301 E Indian Bend Road
 
PARKING:  We ask that you drop everyone at the park with the items you need for the day.  Drive to Saint Barnabas Church, 6715 N Mockingbird Lane, Paradise Valley and park your car.  We will have two 15 passenger vans that will return you to the park.  It is less than a one mile trip.  We are unable to transport car seats, wheel chairs, etc. so please drop your passengers at the park before you go to Saint Barnabas.  It is necessary that we do as much off site parking as possible as the retailers across the street will not allow parking during business hours.
