  • The Community Partnership's Linking Hearts Adoption Fair will be held Friday, Sept. 21, from 5-7 p.m. at Lion's Club Park in Rolla.
    There are nearly 2,000 children in Missouri who are hoping for a home to call their own. For the past nine years, this event has brought together almost 500 children seeking adoption, and over 250 families hoping to become adoptive parents.
    One of The Community Partnership's most important partners in this event is Missouri S&T's Greek Community (the Interfraternity & Panhellenic Councils), which provides hundreds of volunteers, a free cookout and family-style carnival of interactive games and booths. These activities give kids and families the opportunity to interact and learn more about each other.
    This one-day community-wide event held in September has resulted in permanent homes for at least 50 children.
    If you are interested in becoming a foster and/or adoptive parent, consider attending this event. For more information, log on to www.thecommunitypartnership.org, or call The Community Partnership at 573-368-2849.
