"Why Not Them" - Lloyd Lewis's account of personal transformation and how he revolutionized a company by employing persons with disablities has a postive message that heals and inspires. More than just a story of personal triumph, or trials of a father and his son born with Down syndrome, its about the commitment to a dream, a community, and to advocacy for those in need.


Our speaker, Luke Stahmer, has served on the Arc board for over a decade, including chairing two executive committies.  He has taken a full-time role doing community relations and business development with an emphasis on sharing the successes of Arc in the community.  He has extensive experience as an executive in both profit and not-for-profit endeavors.  He co-created the Dare to Play series of camps with Ed McCaffrey.  "Christian McCaffrey with Global Down Syndrome Foundation's Dare to Play Football Camp"
