First Baptist Maryville to host ‘Special Needs Spring Fling’

First Baptist Maryville, 7110 State Route 162, will host a “Special Needs Spring Fling” on Friday, May 8 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Last year, the church put on a prom specifically designed for students with special needs. While spreading the word about the prom, First Baptist Maryville received so much positive feedback from adults, they decided to open the event up to anyone with special needs over the age of 14. This free event will provide a taste of summer in the spring with delicious finger foods and great music, all in a relaxed atmosphere. Caregivers are also encouraged to attend.

RSVP is requested, but not necessary to attend. Visit register.fbmaryville.org for more information or to RSVP.
