May 5th – Cinco de Mayo Last year, Special Olympics reorganized their areas and combines many of their events into what I have begun calling them, “MEGA-EVENTS.” We can do it, they just will require a little more effort and coordination. But I know the Parrot Heads will rise to the occasion!!! It is possible that each of these games will be for 1000 – 1500 athletes, coaches, and volunteers. So, please volunteer, commit, and offer to help in whatever way you can!
