developmental disabilities, will be from 7:15 to 9:15 p.m. at the
McCambridge Recreation Center, 1515 N. Glenoaks Blvd. Admission is $2
for dancers, and caregivers are admitted for free. Birthdays will
also be celebrated.
Several local groups, including the Altrusa Club and National
Charity League, Burbank Chapter, will be on hand that night and
throughout the season to host refreshments. The Burbank Civitans,
