We have received the following invitation from Pamela Mower:
Sanderson Community Center of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
30th Anniversary Celebration
VIP Guest Invitation
Hello! We are excited to share a very special event with you and extend an invitation to join us! We would love to have you come since you’ve been a great ally to Sanderson Community Center in many ways. On Saturday, August 27, 2022, from 4:00 to 8:00 pm, the Utah State Division of Services of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DSDHH), housed at the Robert G. Sanderson Community Center of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing will be celebrating its 30th anniversary!
The Sanderson Community Center is unique as it is the only one of its kind in the U.S.A. Thirty years ago, a group of Deaf advocates, led primarily by Robert G. Sanderson successfully achieved funding to establish a “one-stop” center in which an array of services and programs could be provided to enhance the lives of people who are Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing and their families. The center has two locations (one in Taylorsville and one in St. George) which provides support services, American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter certification, educational workshops, cultural events and more in a barrier-free environment with full communication access. We are very proud of this achievement. DSDHH/Sanderson Community Center is a true Utah gem!
The celebration schedule will be as following:
4 pm to 6 pm– an open house where guests can explore the center and all it has to offer. There will be tours, multimedia presentations along with a play area for the kids.
6 pm – 7 pm – Appetizers and a social hour with opportunities to meet and mingle with community and local government leaders.
7 pm – 8 pm– A program will feature entertainment, local Deaf and Hard of Hearing leaders and guest speakers with commemorations and comments tying the past to the present and the future of the Sanderson Community Center.
We would like to cordially invite you to attend this special event marking 30 years of service to the Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing communities in Utah. Without the support of the state and people of compassion it would not be possible to offer such a wide range of valuable services. You and the organization/agency you represent are an important cornerstone of everything we do. Please join us in celebrating the legacy of our predecessors and our heritage as we launch into the next 30 years!
