The term “Special Events” is actually fairly generic when it comes to explaining the kind and scale of events that NSSRA coordinates. Special Events, broadly, are one-time events that give participants exposure to a specific area or provide a social experience among peers.
(Translation: We get to come up with more ways to have fun with you!)
Special Events can be split into two categories:
2. Annual agency-wide
Seasonal Special Events include “School’s Out” programs, one-time outings to local attractions, favorite hot spots, sports events, concerts…anything and everything is game! If it’s happening, chances are we’ll be there. Typically our seasonal events are organized by age or ability and require you to be an NSSRA resident to participate.
Some of our annual agency-wide special events include the Shining Stars Awards & Recognition Banquet, Spring Formal (participants only), Northbrook Days, NSSRA Summer Bash, NSSRA Bowling Tournament (participants only) and our Cultural Arts Open House. Agency-wide events are open to NSSRA friends, families and participants of all ages and abilities unless otherwise noted.
Let’s just put it this way: These are not the kind of events to which you want to be fashionably late! Why miss any fun? Big or small, NSSRA knows how to put on a party!
