|ALS 20th Anniversary Celebration|
The 20th anniversary of the ALS was celebrated on Friday, October 4, with style, good humor, lots of stories, and a very large cake. More important, however, was the large number of current and former colleagues and users, who were delighted to have the opportunity to visit and catch up with former workmates. When not chatting with colleagues or listening to the high-shool chamber trio, attendees were entertained by a video montage, old photos featuring ALS staff and users through the years, and a four-paneled timeline.

Here are some of the photos of the event; more will be posted on the ALS Facebook and Flickr pages.
