Wellington, PBSO Host ‘A Day For Autism’ At Park

Wellington Vice Mayor John McGovern, Councilwoman Tanya Siskind, Luca and Councilman Michael Napoleone, PBSO Capt. Rolando Silva and Village Manager Jim Barnes put their handprints on the PBSO truck.

“A Day for Autism” was held Sunday, Feb. 27 at Village Park in Wellington. This event was first held in 2017 as a way to connect people with autism to local resources and have them become more comfortable around Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputies. There were bounce houses, games and a petting zoo for children, and Spider-Man made a special appearance. This event was sponsored by the Village of Wellington, the PBSO, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital and the FAU Center for Autism and Related Disabilities. PHOTOS BY ERIN DAVISSON
